La Danse du Sabre, performed by a dancer we believe was named Germaine Rose, circa 1905. A German card, with minor corner and edge wear. Fabulous Belle Epoque (Jugendstil Epoche), imagery, making use of the ubiquitous "costume orientale," and gorgeously hand colored.

***Note*** Since listing this card some time ago, we came across another copy of this image, labeled "Judith" by the publisher. The fact is, given the style of Mlle. Rose's costume, with no apparent effort at producing a particularly "ancient" flavor, we have our doubts about the image really having had anything to do with Judith at all, and suspect that the publisher tried the title out for a time just to see how it flew, but having seen the card titled Judith, it is possible that this sword dance image was drawn from a theatrical production depicting that biblical story, so we've changed our listing title to suit.

Please examine our high res scans for detail.

Postage is for first class shipping in a secure photo mailer, and we happily combine shipping on all paper goods. If you purchase two cards, we will refund the postage on the second card, and when you purchase three or more cards from us at the same time, your shipping will be entirely free, except for international orders which, because of sudden increases in international shipping rates will still be charged one card's shipping fees on orders of three or more.

And please come visit our blog at:
