I joust love these old theater study types of postcard sets. This one is one of my favorites entitled in English," Parisian Romance". It has been exquisitely hand tinted prior to printing, I feel this point is very important and should to taken notice of when you are looking to invest in antique cards. So many are being hand tinted after the printing was made. Not that they are not lovely in their own right, but there is a difference in true hand tinting before and after the fact. So pay close attention when purchasing for there are not as many out there that area available with the tinting being done pre publishing. This is a complete set of eight unused cards and are in very good condition. on two of the cards there are little paint stains that appear to have been a miss hap during the tinting process.So glad they were not destroyed! This set was photographed by Walery who was a early 20th century photographer of the rich and famous.He is best known today for his Folies Berge and other burlesque houses images of nude and semi nude women. The women portraying the man in this series was a star of the time named Kelly who preformed for the Casino De Paris. She can be found on many cards out there. Enjoy the ambiance!
