ADORABLE LITTLE BOY AND AN EARLY WOODEN TRICYCLE

This vintage postcard features a adorable little boy, or possibly a girl, sitting on a wooden tricycle. The photograph was likely taken on the front porch of the child’s home. Note that there are two figures of a child on a trike either drawn on, or part of, the child’s shirt. The  two figures seem to be similar to the stitching on the child’s sleeve cuffs and collar. The AZO stamp box on the reverse of this photo postcard indicates that it was printed between 1910 and 1930. This vintage postcard is in good condition (see scans).

berlin cab

berlin cab 1A beautifully dressed young woman and two children pose for a family portrait at the studio of C. Gunteritz, in Berlin, Germany. The young woman is likely the mother of the two children, although it is possible that she could be their older sister. The little girl is holding a basket of flowers and her younger brother has a toy rabbit on his lap. The young woman’s dress is made of material that is not commonly seen in cabinet card  photographs. Hopefully, a visitor to the Cabinet Card Gallery will be able to identify the dress’s material. This cabinet card portrait is in very good condition (see scans).

YOUNG WOMAN PULLS HER DAUGHTER IN A WOODEN WAGON

This vintage photograph features a mother pulling her daughter in a wooden wagon. The photograph appears to have been taken during the winter. The child is bundled in a heavy coat and has her hand protected from the cold by a fur muff. She is sitting on a heavy blanket. Mom is also prepared for winter. She is wearing a long dress and is accessorized with a fur scarf and she has fur cuffs on her sleeves. This photographed was purchased from a collector in England. A sticker on the reverse of the photo indicates the photographer’s name. His name is Oscar Hurt, though I am not certain about the accuracy of his last name since the writing is difficult to decipher. This photograph measures about 4 1/2 x 6 1/4.   (SOLD)

CLOSE-UP PHOTOGRAPH OF THE CUTEST LITTLE BOY IN YUGOSLAVIA RIDING A CAROUSEL HORSE

This vintage real photo postcard captures a a very cute child sitting on a carousel type horse. The child seems to be a bit befuddled by the experience of being photographed. He does not appear to be thrilled with the idea of posing for a photograph. On the other hand, the horse seems perfectly happy. Is the child wearing pajamas? The setting of the photograph is a studio in Yugoslavia. The evidence of that identification is the Yugolslavian stamp on the card. The postmark indicates that the picture was taken in 1973. The postmark is from Vrnjacka Banja. On today’s map, the town is located in central Serbia.   SOLD

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).   (SOLD)
