This is a fine color postcard of Kaiser Wilhelm I. It commemorates the 100th anniversary of his birth (1797-1897). To the left, Wilhelm I appears in a Küraßier’s uniform. To the right, we see his place in Berlin.
FRAMED PHOTOGRAPH – PRINCESS CECILIE AND HER DAUGHTER
Princess Cecilie was one of the most popular of the royals in Germany. She was a princess from Mecklenburg-Schwerin, and was later married to Wilhelm, Kronprinz of Germany, the oldest son of Kaiser Wilhelm II. She was very involved in relief efforts in Germany, both before and during WW I. She was an attractive woman. The people of Germany took her to their hearts, as she was very good with people and quite photogenic. This period-framed piece shows her with her baby, the Princess Alexandrine. The frame is gilt and measures 12 1/2″ x 9 1/2.” The photograph measures 6″ x 6 1/4.” A dedication in pencil is on the photograph, advising the cause that the proceeds of the photograph would benefit. It is in wonderful condition, and ready to hang on your wall.
I'm Kenneth (Ken) J. Greenfield, currently of New Port Richey, Florida, located on the West Coast of Florida in the Tampa Bay area. I started out as a collector of Imperial German Militaria, particularly items dealing with the Imperial German Air Service in the early 1960's. After more than forty years of avid collecting, I began to sell a few items to upgrade my collection and help finance my collecting "habit." I attended militaria shows, both to buy and sell. I wanted to spend more time at home and less traveling for the national companies that I had worked for; so, starting my own business seemed like an attractive alternative. I like nothing better than talking with others about militaria, and introducing newcomers to the joys of owning a "piece of history."
