CHAMPAGNE AND A SEXY SHOW GIRL ON ICE (REAL PHOTO POSTCARD)

champagne

This vintage real photo postcard features what may be some photographer’s fantasy. Nothing beats having a bottle of champagne and a pretty young lady chilling on ice. I doubt that many men have actually ever had such a thought. If I was a psychologist, which in fact I am, I might be thinking that the bottle of champagne is a perfect example of a phallic symbol. I wonder if the photographer realized he had created a subliminal sexually charged image when he took this photograph. I’m not sure how to interpret the spider web in the background. If you haven’t noticed, this postcard is celebrating a New Year. The reverse of the card shows a postmark from Brussels, Belgium and indicates the date was December 31st, between 1918 and 1919.  The stamp on the postcard is also from Belgium.

SWEET PHOTOGRAPH OF A LITTLE BOY RIDING A ST. BERNARD (VINTAGE REAL PHOTO POSTCARD)

stuff dog

This vintage real photo postcard features a sweet little boy dressed in winter clothing riding a large St. Bernard dog. Of course the dog is a stuffed toy but it sure looks realistic. In fact, the dog may actually be a stuffed “real” dog. This winter scene photograph is a rare find. The image was produced by a private studio. There are two photographer stamps on the reverse of the postcard. One stamp is from “Le Bon Photographe” (The Good Photographer?) which was located in Ostende, Belgium. Ostende is a coastal city in West Flanders. The second stamp states “Studio Universele” which was located in Brussels.   SOLD
