A PRETTY WOMAN WITH A FAR-AWAY LOOK, A FAN, AND A RAISED GLASS

This carefully posed vintage real photo postcard begs the viewer to hypothesize about what's happening in this photograph. A pretty young woman displaying a far-away look holds an open fan in one hand and a glass of champagne in the other. Her dress and appearance could be described as risque. The top part of her dress is sheer and beaded in places. She has a beautiful hat and wearing a fancy hair ornament. The woman is well dressed and stylish. What is this lovely lady thinking about? Any guesses? The preprinted message on the bottom of the postcard, "prosit neujahr" is German for "Happy New Year". This postcard was published by Neue Photographische Gesellschaft (NPG) in Berlin, Germany. The postcard was part of a series and was mass produced for sale. It was likely published in the 1910's.
