PORTRAIT OF AN ADORABLE LITTLE GIRL AND HER KEWPIE DOLL (1926-1940’s)

 

clluloid flapper This vintage real photo postcard features an adorable little girl, seated on a bench, and holding a little doll. The doll appears to be a kewpie doll. Kewpie is a brand of doll which was modeled after a comic strip character created by cartoonist Rose O’Neill in 1909. The doll had a similar appearance to cupid. In 1912 the first kewpie doll appeared and it was a bisque doll. Later, the dolls were made of composition (1920’s), celluloid (1930’s and 1940’s), and later plastic kewpies made their appearance. A person knowledgable about dolls, told me that the doll seen in this photograph is made of celluloid. The AZO stamp box on the reverse of this postcard indicates that the photograph was taken sometime between 1926 and the 1940’s. This photo postcard is in excellent condition (see scans).

DARLING LITTLE GIRL AND HER PULL TOY IN CZECHOSLOVAKIA

This carte de visite gives center stage to a most adorable little girl. She is standing next to her pull toy, a very detailed jockey and horse. Note the horses realistic looking mane. The toy is on wheels. This photograph was taken at a photo studio belonging to C. G. Springer. Since Mr Springer owned  multiple studios, it is uncertain as to which particular location was the producer of this image. All three of Springer’s studios were in Czechoslavokia (Reichenberg, Teplitz, and Trautenau). This cdv photograph is in very good condition (see scans).  (SOLD)

 

ADORABLE LITTLE GIRL AND HER FANTASTIC PULL TOYS

This vintage real photo postcard features an adorable short haired little girl posing between two pull toy animals. The toy elephant and lamb are larger than most pull toys I have seen in other vintage photographs. Note the girl’s piercing eyes. The history of pull toys is interesting, It is believed that the earliest wooden toys appeared sometime during the Stone Age.Wooden toys were produced during the Middle Ages and were manufactured by industry in the 1800’s, especially in Europe. Steiff was a manufacturer of pull-alongs. The toys were described in advertising as “High Class Riding animals”. In 1880, Margarete Steiff, a German seamstress, founded the stuffed animal company that bears her name. Interestingly, a bout of polio limited her sewing to using just one hand. Her nephew created the first soft bear for his Aunt. When an American wholesaler saw the bear at the Leipzig Toy Fair in 1903, he ordered three thousand of them. By the time of World War I, Steiff had sold millions of these toys in Europe and the United States. Perhaps the toys in this photo postcard were made by Steiff. Producers of early pull toys included Fisher Price and Lego. This photo postcard was produced by the Foto Luz studio, located in Bucharest, Romania. The studio’s name is embossed on the lower right hand corner of this scallop edged postcard. The postcard is from the 1940’s and is in excellent condition.

TWO ADORABLE LITTLE GIRLS, THEIR TEDDY BEARS, AND THEIR PUPPY HAVING A GARDEN PARTY

This vintage real photo postcard is absolutely adorable. Kudos to the photographer. Two cute young girls smile as they enjoy their garden party. Invited guests include two teddy bears and a little white dog. The pup is sitting in wagon and appears to be doing a good job of cooperating with the photographer. The party-goers are sitting in a beautiful garden. They are surrounded by lovely flowers. One could get the impression, from looking at this image, that these sweet children may be from a wealthy family and are being photographed at their family’s estate. This photo postcard has a “AZO” stamp box which indicates it was published between 1904 and 1918. Close examination of the front of the postcard (left hand corner) reveals an embossed identification of the photographer. The photo was taken by the Rollins Photo Company of Lisbon, Ohio. Benjamin Rollins (1863-1930) is listed in the 1910 US Census and is reported to be a photographer who operated is own studio/gallery.

PORTRAIT OF SWEET LITTLE OTTO AND HIS HOOP TOY (1913)

This sweet little boy is adorably dressed. He poses for his studio portrait in front of a very nice backdrop painting of the sea. The child is holding on to a hoop toy. He takes extra precaution that the toy won’t roll away by standing on the bottom of the hoop. A note below the image identifies the boy as Otto and the year the photograph was taken (1913). I am not a linguist so I can only guess what language the embossed studio information is written in. My hypothesis is that this photograph was taken in Russia, or possibly Greece. If I am correct, one wonders what a boy with a German name (Otto) is doing in Russia or Greece. Hopefully, a visitor to the Cabinet Card Gallery will be able to identify the language and leave a comment which will solve the mystery.
