Product Description

A really charming selection of 11 original hand drawn, cut and applied antique French personalised postcards, depicting a selection of humorous c1910 images of characters from the Paris scene, given the fashions.

There are amorous couples, some slightly erotic, but all with an element of fun. There is one from the famous ‘Cabaret du Neant’ (Cabaret of the Void), in Paris, with a skeleton. The cabaret was one of the first ‘theme’ restaurants, specialising on the subject of death.

The postcards are quite detailed with applied cut-out black card onto cream backing. Condition is mostly very good, with very slight marks or staining, apart from one that has had blue ink run on it. They have not been written on or posted. The cards were all produced by Cartes Animees Lambert, of Paris. They can be seen mostly in serious collections and few turn up for sale.

Size: 9 x 13.5 cm (3 ½ x 5 5/16 inches)
