PORTRAIT OF FRENCH FILM STAR MLLE BARBIER (PHOTOGRAPHED BY LEOPOLD REUTLINGER)

This exceptional real photo postcard comes from the Paris studio of Leopold Reutlinger. His subject for this photograph is a beautiful theatrical actress, Mlle Barbier. The actress is spectacularly dressed and wearing hoop earrings in this color tinted photograph. The postcard is part of a series published by SIP (no. 1357). The home of SIP (Societe Industrielle de Photograpie) was Rueil, France. Research did not yield a firm identification of Mlle Barbier. A strong possibility is that the attractive actress photographed for this postcard was Charlotte Barbier-Krauss (1877-1938). The French actress was best known for appearing in "The Empty Cradle" (1910), "Le calvaire de Dona Pia" (1925), and "Poil de carotte" (1925). In 1914, she married director Henry Krauss. Mlle Barbier's filmography includes about 34 films between 1909 and 1938. She is also credited with appearing in six plays between 1921 and 1937.

RARE CABINET CARD: LITTLE GIRL POSING IN FRONT OF A RAILROAD THEMED BACKDROP

by bmarshphd
This is quite a rare cabinet card. What makes the photograph unusual is the railroad themed backdrop. The young girl is standing in front of a faux railroad bridge. I have seen thousands of cabinet cards and I have never seen a similar backdrop. The little girl is wearing a dark dress with a collar pin. She is holding a fan. This photograph was taken at the Buchenau & Giegerich studio in Prairie Due Sac, Wisconsin. The Wisconsin Photographers Index reports that Hugo Buchenau operated a photography studio in Sauk City between at least 1891 and 1896. The 1870 US census reveals that Buchenau was born in Wisconsin in 1865 to immigrant parents. His father was a saloon keeper. The directory also states that he was partners with Mr Giegerich in 1887 through 1888 and possibly in other years. Mr. Giegerich's first name was likely Bertrand (aka Bert) based on the fact that local directories report a man with this name was a printer and newspaper publisher during this era.

TINTYPE PORTRAIT OF A BEAUTIFUL YOUNG WOMAN

by bmarshphd
This tintype portrait features a beautiful young woman wearing a lovely dress. Her jewelry includes a bracelet and a ring. According to Wikipedia, tintypes were made by "creating a direct positive on a thin sheet of metal coated with a dark lacquer or enamel and used as the support for the photographic emulsion". Tintypes were most popular during the 1860's and 1870's.

CARTE DE VISITE PORTRAIT OF A BEAUTIFUL YOUNG WOMAN IN PENZANCE, ENGLAND

by bmarshphd
This Carte de Visite features a very attractive and well dressed young woman. She appears to be in her teenage years or slightly beyond them. Her dress is very fancy and pretty. She is wearing a nicely decorated hat and is accessorized with a necklace and collar pin. Her hair is braided and it falls over her right shoulder. She is holding something in her hands and I am at a loss to identify what it is. Perhaps it is a handkerchief or a purse. The photographer of this cdv portrait is Robert H. Preston who operated a studio in Penzance. The town and port of Penzance are located in Cornwall, England. Robert Hawker Peniel Preston (1837-1931) was partners with Samuel Poole in the early part of his career. Later he operated his own studio until 1901. At some point, his son Richard Preston, worked with him in the photographic studio. Robert Preston married Harriet Snell Body and they had at least seven children. The advertising on the reverse of this carte de visite declares that Preston was one of the official photographers of the Prince and Princess of Wales.

PORTRAIT OF PRETTY BURLESQUE ACTRESS EDY VAYLAND

by bmarshphd
The pretty costumed blonde actress featured in this real photo postcard is Edy Vayland. She is wearing a fantastic headdress. This portrait is a bit risque for it's era. Preliminary research revealed zero information about this Belle Epoque theatre actress. The postcard is from the 1910's and was published in Italy by A. Traldi from the city of Milan. Traldi operated in Milan from 1902-1918. The publisher concentrated on view cards of Europe and the Middle East. They are also known for a series published that focussed on dogs. Research reveals that they produced a number of postcard portraits of European stage performers. If any visitors to the Cabinet Card Gallery have information about Miss Vayland, please leave a comment to educate the rest of us.
