Charles Baret (1863-1934) was a French theater director and show organizer. He started his touring theater in 1891. Theater posters and memorabilia for Tournées Baret are highly collectable. What we have here aren't theater posters, but unique ephemera for the postcard collector. I've been collecting for going on 15 years and these are the first I've ever come across. I'm keeping one for my own collection. These two feature four mini-portraits, all of Mademoiselle Jane Hading; each Reutlinger photo is about 2 by 2.5 inches. Two portraits have been glued to the address side of a blank postcard. Hading (Nov. 25 1859 – Feb. 28, 1941) was renown as a Belle Epoque actress in her native country as well as England and America. Although I'm not positive on the dating of these cards, I found an interesting one-liner online reference from "The Dramatic and Musical Art in the Twentieth Century." Written in French and giving information for the 1903/1904 season, for the Province region, it notes "Baret the tour, 9 November, allowed us to applaud Mrs Jane Hading in 'The Master of the Forges.' " Hading originally starred in this play in 1883 at the Gymnase In her hometown of Marseille.

These cards and the photos have a warm sepia tone. Minor creases on the cards, but not on the photos. For their age, these are overall in fine antique condition. Each card is about 5.5 by 3.5 inches.
