Winter Sports – Antique Ice Skating Postcards

February 11th, 2008 · No Comments

It’s cold outside but, overall, this has been a mild winter so far. Global warming? Who knows. Friends in Idaho and Canada report harsher-than-normal winters. Here are some winter sports postcards to view, if you’re indoors trying to keep warm.

Ice Skating Sports Postcard, Artist Signed by C. W. Simpson

This charming unused and undivided-back 1901-1907 postcard shows a boy wrapped up against wintry weather and ready to skate. Artist signed by American postcard artist C. W. Simpson, it’s from his “American Child Studies.” series. The boy’s red hat and scarf provide a nice counterpoint to the wintry tones of the ice and nearby birch trees. Simpson specialized in football, skiing and other sports postcards. We’ve also seen one from his “American Child” series showing a hockey game in progress. Learn more about Simpson in Mashburn’s The Artist-Signed Postcard Price Guide, available through our postcard bookstore.

some description

This graphically striking 1922 postcard, artist-signed by Fidus (Hugo Hoppener) of Germany, depicts a female ice skater in a short tunic and with a fur muff in one hand! It conveys a great sense of action, and was published by Rommler & Jonas of Munich. See the ice skating postcard collectibles at our website.
