ADORABLE LITTLE GIRL WEARING THE BIGGEST COLLAR IN THE WORLD

OK. It may not be the biggest collar in the world, but it’s pretty big. The smiling cute young girl seen in this vintage real photo postcard, by my estimation, is curtseying after giving a dance performance. Her shoes, stockings, short dress, and the flower in her hair are all reasons for my hypothesis. And what about the collar? It appears to be on steroids. I don’t think the collar is something she would wear in everyday life. I am wondering if she is wearing a costume designed to make her look like a flower? What do you think? I must admit, the “collar” reminds me of an “Elizabethan Collar” worn by dogs after surgery. This is a very unique image. The photo was taken by a private photographer and not mass produced to be sold by studios to the general public. This real photo postcard portrait is in very good condition (see scans).

PORTRAIT OF AN ADORABLE LITTLE GIRL STANDING ON A BENCH IN PLYMOUTH, NEW HAMPSHIRE

An adorable little girl with an impish smile poses for her portrait at the studio of Harry S. Heath in Plymouth, New Hampshire. The nicely dressed child is standing on a bench. The photographer did a great job of using fabric in setting up the pose for this photograph. Heath created an interesting effect with the material that causes his subject to really stand out in the image. This talented photographer was born in Manchester, New Hampshire in 1866 and died in that city in 1898 at the age of thirty-one. He was married at the time of his death. His cause of death was Pyaemia. This disease is a type of septicaemia frequently caused by staph infection. He is buried in Ashland, New Hampshire. This cabinet card portrait has excellent clarity and is in very good condition (see scans).

TWO ADORABLE LITTLE GIRLS POSE FOR THEIR PORTRAIT : BOTH WERE POPULAR PHOTO POSTCARD MODELS

This vintage real photo postcard features two adorable little girls. This photograph is stunning. The card was published by PFB as part of a series (no.230). PFB stands for Paul Fink, a publishing firm located in Berlin, Germany. The company existed between 1899 and 1905. Fink was a fine art printer and they published many “elaborate” postcards. Many of these cards utilized embossing in their production.  The postmark on the reverse of this card indicates it was stamped in the 1920’s. The reverse of the card also reveals that it was published by the Philco Publishing Company of London, England. Philco published postcards between 1905 and 1934. Perhaps Philco bought out PFB and the rights to publish PFB photo cards. This postcard has excellent clarity and is in very good condition (see scans). SOLD
