PORTRAIT OF A LITTLE GEISHA GIRL (CDV)

GISHA CDV

GISHA CDV 1

This cartes de visite portrait features a smiling barefoot little girl dressed as a geisha. She is holding an Asian style umbrella. Geisha girls are Japanese women who are entertainers. They perform ancient traditions of art, dance, and song. They wear traditional costumes and make-up. There was a time that geisha fashion was popular in the Western world. Both adult women and young children, in the west, would wear this Japanese fashion. It is not uncommon to find cabinet card era (late 19th and early 20th century) photographs of Western women wearing kimonos. This cdv photograph measures about 2 5/8″ x 3 5/8″ and is in very good condition (see scans).

PORTRAIT OF A YOUNG FIREMAN IN GLEN’S FALLS, NEW YORK (CARTE DE VISITE)

fireman 11

A uniformed young man poses for his portrait at a Glen’s Falls, New York photography studio. The photographers operating the studio were Conkey (George W.) & Hultz. The gentleman in this photograph appears to be a fireman. His belt buckle indicates that he was in the first company of the department. Note his Napoleonic pose. It is possible that the subject of this cdv photograph is actually a policeman, naval officer, or some other uniformed worker. However, I am fairly confident that he is a fireman. This carte de visite is in very good condition (see scans).  (SOLD)

INCREDIBLY ADORABLE AND FASHIONABLE CHILD IN OSCHATZ, GERMANY

The young child seen in this carte de visite is both stylish and adorable. The photographer did an excellent job capturing the essence of this child. Kudos to mom for being an excellent fashion coordinator. The photographer of this cdv image is Herm. Kocxyk. He operated a studio in Oschatz, Germany which is a town located in the Free State of Saxony. An inscription on the reverse of the cdv reveals that the photograph was taken in 1903. I was unable to translate the rest of the inscription other than “Our favorite ………”. Perhaps a visitor to the Cabinet Card Gallery can complete the translation. ADDENDUM: I HAVE BEEN OFFERED A TRANSLATION OF THE INSCRIPTION. SEE IT BELOW.

The back of this photo says:

“Our darling Fritzel (nickname for Fritz)
3/4 of a year old (9 months)
Fritz Hänsel born 25. June 1903
Oschatz in Saxony.”
