A special thanks to blogger Willy or Won't He for information about Italian artist Marco Montedoro "who fled to America during World War II and eventually became head designer at New York’s Radio City Music Hall." That tidbit explains the exotic pizzaz behind Montedoro's fashion postcards, which are very rare. I'm pleased to have two to offer you: this one and the other one is listed here: https://www.rubylane.com/item/274812-8157/Ex78otic-Art-Deco-Asian-Fashion-Italian
This postcard, circa 1920-1925, is in near mint condition. The glue verso and paper patch explain its well preserved condition and don't affect the front art. However, the white border has been cut away off the card, making it smaller than typical antique postcards: it's about 3.25 by 5.25. I've included photos to help capture the gold pigment details that have been added, from her feathered cap down to her shoes. However, the first image, the direct scan, captures the richly saturated colors more accurately.
Per my Buy More, Save More offer (details on my home page) buy both Montedoro postcards and get free shipping/insurance within the US and an additional $35 off your total! (Or even if you just add a $5 postcard already on sale, you'll still get $35 off your total!)
