MISS RUSSIA -WINNER OF THE MISS EUROPE BEAUTY CONTEST- TATIANA MASLOVA – 1933

This vintage real photo postcard features Miss Tatyana Maslova photographed while she was participating in the 1933 Miss Europe Contest. She was representing Russia. Her entry into the Miss Russia pageant was in a roundabout way. A journalist from Vilnius, Tayana’s hometown, had entered her in the contest. Along with her photo, the reporter wrote a message stating that Tatyana was the “daughter of a Black Sea Fleet officer who was shot during the Civil War in the south of Russia”. The writer also added that Tatyana  was nineteen years of age, fluent in five languages, and “represents the image of the classical Russian beauty”. After winning the Miss Russia title, she went on to the Miss Europe contest in Madrid, Spain, where she was crowned Miss Europe. Tatyana won a trip to Portugal for her victory. She participated in a film in Warsaw and than returned to Vilna where she lived a modest life. Not much is known about her life after winning the Miss Europe contest; though the consensus is that she died at an early age. This postcard was published by well known and acclaimed photographer, Alfred Noyer. His Paris studio operated between 1910 and the 1940’s. Many of the postcards he produced featured nudes or risque images. This postcard was part of the Miss Europa series (no. 13G). The postcard is in very good condition (see scans).
