$20.00 - Product is currently out of stock.

Elsie de Wolfe, also known as Lady Mendl, (December 20, 1859 – July 12, 1950), American actress, interior decorator, nominal author of the influential 1913 book 'The House in Good Taste,' and a prominent figure in New York, Paris, and London society, vintage silver print 'real photo' postcard. Photograph credited to Pach Bros., NY.

According to The New Yorker, "Interior design as a profession was invented by Elsie de Wolfe," although the praise is not strictly true. De Wolfe was certainly the most famous name in the field until the 1930s, but the profession of interior decorator/designer was recognized as a promising one as early as 1900, five years before she received her first official commission, The Colony Club in New York. During her married life (from 1926 until her death in 1950) the press often referred to her as Lady Mendl. She was born in New York and died at Versailles, France.

Verso bears original postcard graphics. In fine condition.
