WORLD’S FIRST PLAYBOY BUNNY: FRENCH ACTRESS MISS AUGUS-THYNE

This vintage real photo postcard features the world’s first playboy bunny. Not really. This wonderful portrait captures French actress Miss Augus-Thyne in a risque costume and sporting long rabbit ears. Her exotic outfit also includes bells and pom poms. The “Ambassadeurs”, a Paris music hall, is printed on the top right hand corner of the front of the postcard. The portrait of Miss Augus-Thyne was photographed by celebrated Paris photographer Stanislaw Julian Ignacy Walery (1863-1935). Walery opened a studio in Paris in 1900 and was known for his portraits of showgirls.   SOLD

ORIGINAL PLAYBOY BUNNY POSES IN TUNSTALL, ENGLAND

A young woman poses for her portrait at the studio of J. Addison & Company in Tunstall, England. Why didn’t the photographer or a family member tell this woman that her outfit made her look like a bunny rabbit? She is dressed in white, and her hat has two white feathers that point straight up like rabbit ears. Apologies to all those visitors looking for the original playboy bunny.
