TWO ADORABLE LITTLE GIRLS POSE FOR THEIR PORTRAIT : BOTH WERE POPULAR PHOTO POSTCARD MODELS

This vintage real photo postcard features two adorable little girls. This photograph is stunning. The card was published by PFB as part of a series (no.230). PFB stands for Paul Fink, a publishing firm located in Berlin, Germany. The company existed between 1899 and 1905. Fink was a fine art printer and they published many “elaborate” postcards. Many of these cards utilized embossing in their production.  The postmark on the reverse of this card indicates it was stamped in the 1920’s. The reverse of the card also reveals that it was published by the Philco Publishing Company of London, England. Philco published postcards between 1905 and 1934. Perhaps Philco bought out PFB and the rights to publish PFB photo cards. This postcard has excellent clarity and is in very good condition (see scans). SOLD
