This set of 5 antique German postcards is unused with undivided backs, dating the printing to 1903/04 or earlier. Verso, the Lion logo for E.S.D. stands for Edgar Schmidt of Dresden, who opened shop in 1898. Schmidt specialized in chromolithographic and half-tone printing. Based on this series, I'd say he specialized in Cuteness with a Capital C.

Marked Serie 727, cards are not assigned an order number but I'll start with the typical dachshund begging pose first. However, we soon see that this is no typical dachshund because he loves to put on his pince nez and read magazines with his little mistress. His next favorite activity is simply snuggling with her on the green velvet settee and getting hugs.

This series shows some wear on the edges and corner tips. One corner tip actually creased. Album imprints at the corner verso. Some imperfections inherent to the printing. You'll notice the girl's hair is more blonde in a couple of the poses and more reddish or brunette in others. (This little girl, by the way, was a regular postcard model.) Overall, considering the age of these cards and considering the coup of finding an entire series in tact, this set is an antique delight in fine condition.

Each card is about 3.5 by 5.5 inches.
