Delightfully Dressed Cats Postcard Box - 36 Unique Vintage Postcards

Sorry, this item has sold.

This box of postcards contains 36 vintage images of dressed cats. These cats mirror our human activities, and are both satirical and endearing.There are 36 unique images in this collection with a vintage postcard back with dividing line and stamp box. (No envelopes included.)

Who doesn't love cats dressed in clothes doing the Hula Hoop, waterskiing, or golfing? There are also images of cats in a traditional 1940s family unit riding in a carriage pulled by dogs, on a ferry, at the service station in their car, at the hospital visiting a family member, and many, many more highly specific activities. (But not playing poker, that activity is reserved for dogs!)

Beginning in the 1940s, illustrations of naturalistically painted cats were published as postcards, all by Swiss artist Eugen Hartung (1897-1973). He created more than two hundred whimsical feline paintings. Just let that one sink in for a moment. This cat-obsessed Swiss man painted anthropomorphic cats in intricate detail doing things like; shopping at a department store, having their family portrait taken, visiting a carnival, getting on an airplane, having a swimming race, playing ping-pong and cleaning the house.

These are truly the cat videos of the mid-century. Share the love of cats with these kitschy postcards!

These postcards were made in America with high quality paper and packaged in a deluxe, keepsake box.

They measure 7" x 5.5".
