Winged Face of Teutonic Character on Frosted Glass Beer Mug

Saturated Color

Not every postcard chosen here features the subtle hues of a hand-tinted postcard. This beautiful Teutonic Godess was created for an Art Show in Weimar Germany in the 1920s.

Shown as a frosted glass beer mug here, the original reflected the power of color saturation. The discovery of coal tar inks and their vivid graphic potential would make Germany and IG Farben worldwide players in postcard production.
