Art Deco hand-painted French Fashion postcards.

Art Deco hand-painted French Fashion postcards.

Ca. 1920. A group of 12 hand-painted postcards depicting women's fashion in the 1920s. The artists include "Rucio", "Orcina' and "Susie". All are in the style of the pochoir fashion magazine "Le Gazette du Bon Ton". On the verso is the standard postcard information for France "Carte Postale. La Correspondance au recto n'est pas acceptee par tous les pays etrangers (Se renseigner a la poste)" with a split back, the address on the right and room for correspondence on the left. Two cards by "Susie" are charming - one woman is dressed in a blue sailor's suit, the duffle bag slung over her shoulder, with the notation "U.S.A.". In the other, the young woman is wearing a short pink and blue striped outfit, holding a nest of eggs, the suggestive caption saying "Nous aussi nous retrouverons bientot notre cher petit nid!" (We will also soon find our own little nest!) The outfits are charming. The postcards are unused, printed on heavy rag card with untrimmed edges. Very good condition. Item #22791
