Postcard SIP 97/1. Caption: Lanthelme. Photo by Reutlinger (circa 1902).

This early postcard of young Lantelme was very popular – even now its different variations (tinted, not tinted etc.) are very easy to find online. The actress’ name is written with an ordinary mistake (Lanthelme instead of Lantelme).


Usually postcard collectors prefer postcards without written text, but I think every message is interesting because it’s a bit of ordinary life in this time.

Postcard series SIP, Collection artistique du VIN DESILES. Caption: Lantelme Th(éatre) Réjane. Photo by Reutlinger (Lantelme is wearing a crinoline dress for La Savelli play).

It was a series of ad postcards, with facsimiles of stars signatures and few lines written. Lantelme wrote: Le vin Désiles redonne la santé donc la joie, et vive la joie!!! Lantelme.

postcard series SIP 173

Postcards from series SIP 173 show beautiful women as butterflies (papillons in French) and are signed Reutlinger (for photos) and John Laurent (for artistic work). I’ve found 6 postcards of this kind. Postcard 173/1 represents Lantelme. These papillon postcards seem to be very popular because they were published in many variations: tinted or b/w, with additional words (like Bonne annee – Happy New Year), etc.
