Antique Japanese Chromolithograph Postcard of two Geishas published by Theo StroeferAntique Japanese Chromolithograph Postcard of two Geishas published by Theo Stroefer

This Japanese chromolithograph postcard is one of two I have available published by Theodore Stroefer of Nuremburg, Bavaria. Stroefer opened shop in 1867 and his company's reputation as a publisher of fine arts has withstood the test of time because of cards like this one. The undivided back tells us it was printed circa 1903. More than 100 years later and the colors are still rich and saturated. This card is unused and aside from minute wear on the corner tips, it is in overall mint condition. This design shows two Geishas in the foreground standing at a latticed gate with an inset circle of a man and woman in the background. Japanese characters dot the design inside the circle and out, in red backgrounds and white.
This card is Serie 398 (8 Dess.) No. 5.
Number 2 in this series is listed separately here: http://www.rubylane.com/item/274812-7570/Japanese-Kabuki-actor-print-Toyokuni-Antique
