I find this postcard difficult to describe because I don't think it accurate to call this Black Americana since it is an Austrian printed postcard. However, it is a colorful and cute scene of some domestic trouble. It seems that one very guilty little dog is hanging its head down in the corner as the young boy listens to the rantings of the girl about her torn red apron. At least, that is the story I see. This card is one in a series featuring this young couple and their country life. I don't usually deal in postcards depicting black people at the turn-of-the-century because the "art" is insulting. However, this scenario is universal, beyond ethnicity, as the harangued male patiently withstands the female's ire. This card is artist signed: E.O.B and E.R. -- a collaborative effort between two Viennese artists: Emil Ranzenhofer (1864 -1930) and Edourd Otto Braunthal (1873-1939). Size: about 3.5 by 5.5 inches. Franked 1908. Mailed from Bordeaux to St.-Genès-de-Castillon on May 3. Printed in Austria by BWKI (Bruder Kohn of Vienna). Slightest signs of age mostly around the bottom right corner tip, but overall, this card is almost mint antique condition. Vibrant rich colors!
