Twentieth Century re-issue  of 19th Century Risque French  PostcardTwentieth Century re-issue  of 19th Century Risque French  Postcard

This 'oh so shocking' early real photo postcard was originally issued in France in the 1890's to an eager Victorian public.

Until then the only nudes readily available were those in the (mostly religious) paintings hanging in the great art galleries of Paris.

This one features a very naughty naked young lady in nothing but red gartered black stockings and nifty shoes. I love the placement of the hands!

Of course she is surrounded with swirls and leaves in an organic Art Nouveau design. I'm nor sure what to make of the eagle..unless of course the design came originally from Germany.

Re-issued mid twentieth century by Editions Andre Ballan, Paris, it dates to the 1960's.

Postally un-used and clean verso it is in very good Vintage condition.
