AT MY DESK : My Vintage Postcards in the mail : Post 1


These are some of my favorites, Nazimova, Brigitte Helm, Ramon Novarro
Josephine Baker and Louise Brooks are highly sought after postcards
Some of my substantial Marlene Dietrich collection, mostly 'Ross'
Rudolph Valentino, Theda Bara and Nazimova.... 20's stars
Lya de Putti, Bebe Daniels, Charles Buddy Rogers 20's greats
I do like postcards of smoking flappers and kitsch lovers
These fantasy cards from Paris are stunning
 
The great actress Sarah Bernhardt
 
These were so camp I had to have them
A mixture of postcards that came in the mail on the same day
Flappers with dolls and cocktail bars and hotels  is a favorite theme
 
 
I love linen postcards of New York, The Empire State and Chrysler Bldgs
 These linen cards is fantastic. I love skylines with blimps & searchlights
Deco styles, blimps, lounges, trains 
Some great cards of vintage New York
 
Posted by PicasaAs a rule I post to a handful of friends any postcards that arrive from ebay each day. I call these posts 'AT MY DESK' and date them accordingly. Ongoing themes include Hollywood glamour and the great stars, 20's stars, flappers, linen postcards of New York, Deco styles, amusement parks, arcade cards, nightclubs, interiors. I have several stars I collect on, and different types of postcards I like, mostly 'Ross' verlag, 'Iris' verlag, Picturegoer, real photo, and fan cards from the studios. Postcards of Josephine Baker, Louise Brooks, Anna May Wong and others get the best prices, followed by Marlene Dietrich, Greta Garbo, Shirley Temple, Valentino, Ramon Novarro and Brigitte Helm. Anything signed is always more valuable.
