When photography studios took photos of a stage star, they reused the photos in a variety of ways to give the image a new look and sell even more cards. The young Leopold Reutlinger introduced what became his trademark collage techniques when he joined the family business in Paris and one of the effects he used was to overlay the same image three times. With each image color tinted, the end result was a unique montage for the adoring fans and postcard collectors. Here is a good example: the actress Mlle. Harlay in a lovely Oriental costume in yellow, pink, green and blue. I can't help but wonder if this was a scene from "Madame Butterfly." A glossy finished real photo postcard, this was mailed in1908. The white border shows signs of age but no creases. Size: about 3.5 by 5.5 inches.
