Vintage postcards and posters from Paris to Portugal to Marrakech are layered with postage stamps and ticket stubs on this intriguing pattern. Passport entrances that mention England and Warsaw are also seen. This is one of those patterns that the more one looks, the more one sees.
Hello, I will be in paris on 6/24 to 6/27 and again on 7/1 and 2. I am very interested in finding one or two places that sell these items from around early 1900's . I am not sure if i should look for regular antique stores , antique book stores, or if any of the markets might sell these items. Can anyone advise of some good sources in central paris thanks a bunch!!
I'm not sure of any particular shop....but there ai a small '..concentration..' of used book shops in the the general neighborhood of the upper-6eme (between the Seine & Blvd. Saint Germain) that I've come across racks/boxes of old postcards among the other merchandise in several. This general neighborhood is just south the the bookiniste stall along the quias of the Seine...and so no great distance to meander.
There is, of course, no reason why you cannot gain an impression of a collection's value - and this article aims to guide you through the steps you must take to do so. Hopefully, it will help you to assess postcards in a more detailed manner.
Real photographic postcards: Printed direct from the negative and, in the 'Golden Age' of postcard production from 1902 to 1918, these cards were often produced in very limited numbers by local photographers. Such cards are scarce. Well-animated types, with children playing in a village centre or an early motorcar close-up, can sell for 15 to 30 each. A close-up of a steam lorry or an early omnibus in a town can be worth 40 to 70. A Suffragette procession or gypsy encampment can sell for over 100.
Subject postcards: Collectors display an interest in a wide range of subjects - including animals, children, comics, shipping, novelty, railways and glamour. But the majority of subject cards do not achieve the intense interest attached to top of the range topographicals.
\"Are the stamps on these postcards of any value\" This is another question we are often asked. Generally, the answer is 'no' because postcard mailing from most countries was prolific. The stamps needed to cover the postage rate were also produced in vast quantities and are still very common.
Mint: A perfect card which is just as it was when it was issued. As new, unposted and in a pristine state, without bends, creases, writing or postmarks. A clean and fresh card with sharp corners, seldom seen and a description which is not normally applicable to vintage cards. 59ce067264
