|Kitsch and Art Postcards||German
|The first picture postcards were published about 120 - 130 years
ago. Soon the first art postcard were issued. Since the transition from art fo "kitsch"
is flowing soon the first postcards with kitsch motives appeared. Especially
during the time shortly before World War I the most kitsch cards were printed.
They are not only historically interesting, since they reflect the spirit of their time and their people, but also they are often showing nice and interesting motives.

I wonder if you can assist me or maybe point me in the right direction … my Dad recently gave a stack of pre-WW2 postcards and photos that were given to him by my Grandfather who served mainly in Italy during the war. They are images of buildings, etc. that may no longer exist or have had to be re-built and I would like to know:-
1. Is a market for them?
2. How to go about selling them?
3. How to value them?
4. They’re unused – does this affect the price?
5. Any other information I need to know before selling them?
… there are also a few photos of people – one of them is of the hanging of the Mussolini family.
I hope you can assist, and look forward to hearing from you.
Kind regards, Belinda Milner

Hi, I recently helped my folks move, including taking back alot of "stuff". Among that was my old postcard collection. I opened two boxes all of cards from 1908 or earlier, some with writing/stamps and some without. The bulk was from or to Germany, some England, some, France. How would I go about getting these appraised without being scammed? Is it really best to do the research myself. I just skimmed over ebay last night out of curiousity -- I had no idea they were even worth anything. They're in seeming mint condition.... I'd be most appreciative of any your time, help, advice and consideration as to how to proceed. Thank you. Best wishes, Anita Elsbree Sylvan
