PRETTY WOMAN WITH A TERRIFIC SMILE (VINTAGE REAL PHOTO POSTCARD)

WATTEAU4

This vintage real photo postcard features a very pretty woman with a wonderful smile and luminous eyes. She is beautifully dressed and adorned by a necklace and flowers. Note her attracive and very detailed headpiece. The image is colored (hand tinted) and numbered (23) so is obviously part of a series. The name “Watteau” is scripted on the bottom right hand corner of the postcard. My preliminary research could not ascertain whether “Watteau” is the name of the beautiful model seen in this image or if it’s the name of the photographer. My hunch is that it is the name of the model. The reverse of this RPPC is blank, save lines for an address. Therefore, the publisher of this postcard is unknown.

  1. Hi,

    If you look at this link (http://www.delcampe.net/page/item/id,0234728263,language,F.html), you will see that the publisher is called “Watteau”.

    You should keep looking for “Edition Watteau” or “Editeur Watteau” or something like that.

    All the best,

    Jacques

  2. The tint work on this one is really special.
