PRETTY YOUNG WOMAN RECLINING ON A COUCH AND READING A “FORBIDDEN BOOK” (RISQUE)

This vintage real photo postcard features a pretty young woman reclining on a couch and reading a book. The caption on the card indicates that she is reading a “Forbidden Book”. She is likely reading a racy novel. This postcard is a bit risque for it’s era (c. 1905). This postcard was published by Paul Fink (Germany) as part of a series (No. 5009/3). He was a fine art printer that operated between 1899 and 1905. The stamp box of this postcard has an interesting story. “NBC” (Neue Bromsilber Convention) was a price cartel established in 1909 that continued until the 1930’s. The purpose of the cartel was to ensure that the minimum price charged for postcards was kept at a sufficiently profitable level. (SOLD)

AN ALLURING YOUNG WOMAN BECKONING FROM A LOVESEAT

This vintage provocative real photo postcard features a pretty young woman sitting on a loveseat, and beckoning for the attention of someone outside the range of the camera. She is offering that person a bouquet of dark flowers. The woman is dressed in a risque fashion. Her attire is not exactly everyday wear. One wonders if she is wearing a costume portraying a gypsy, or is perhaps, a flapper. The pictured woman is showing more bare skin than would normally be expected from a woman of this era. Note her unusual and interesting head covering. The AZO stamp box on this postcard reveals that it was produced sometime between 1918 and 1930. The postcard is in very good condition (see scans).
