This German-printed postcard of an Edwardian woman holding a glass of champagne is a superb example of montage from the turn-of-the-century. Two-thirds of the background in the card has been overlayed in a metallic rustic bronze finish. You can still make out the wallpaper leaf design that was in the original photo. With our modern day printing techniques where complex designs are created with a simple click of the mouse, cards like these are all the more appreciated for the the laborious and tedious cutting, pasting and overprinting that was required back then. At the bottom left corner are the publisher's markes: NPG. The Neue Photographische Gesellschaft (The New Photographic Society) was a member organization of photographers founded by Arthur Schwarz in Berlin, Germany, in 1894. They became the largest manufacturer of bromide postcards in the world. They printed postcards for other companies, such as Leopold Reutlinger in Paris. No creases but wear on the edges and corner tips. The heart of the image is tres belle and well preserved, especially considering it is a glossy finish photo. The franking verso is not legible but possibly 1908? Size: about 3.5 by 5.5 inches.
