PORTRAIT OF A BEAUTIFUL AND LUCKY YOUNG WOMAN

This vintage real photo postcard features a very attractive young woman holding a bouquet of purple flowers and what appears to be a horseshoe. The woman is beautifully dressed in an orange winter coat with a fur collar and fur sleeve cuffs. She has a wonderful smile. The postcard is from the French art deco period. It was likely published in the 1910’s. The postcard was published by Gloria and was part of a series (no. 4010). The horseshoe seen in this photograph is an enigma. First of all, is it a horseshoe? It is way too large to be anything but a piece of art, rather than a real horseshoe. Horseshoes have long been associated as being “lucky”. They were originally made of iron, a metal that was believed to ward off evil spirits. They were originally held in place with seven nails. Seven was considered a lucky number. Superstitious sailors believed a horseshoe nailed to a mast would keep storms away from their ship. This postcard is in excellent condition (see scans).
