    The acronym B.B. can be Bad Boy, Brigitte Bardot, blunderbuss2 (too) and in postcards it’s Birn Brothers – a London based firm...It seems that all B. B. L0ndon’s cards are a part of a set usually of four/six, or more. This one is marked “B.B. London. Series No. H. 3.”

    Title: (Glamour Girl/Lady)
    Artist: Angelo Asti?
    Publisher: B.B. London: Birn Brothers. This chromolithographic card was manufactured in Germany.
    Year: c1920
    Size: 14.1cm x 9cm (5½" x 3½")
    Description: colour card with a Glamour Girl used for a Christmas message.
    “B.B. London. Series No. H. 3.” is printed at the bottom left hand side of the reverse of the card.

    Content created
    The handwritten text is dated “Xmas 1920. Wishing you a Merry
    Xmas & Happy New Year from Marcia Allsopp.

    Recipient of letter
    Miss Maude Lankester

    Materials:Paper, Ink,
    Associated data:
    B B LONDON - Birn Brothers were a London, England publisher from c1905. They did embossed cards, teddy bears, crested views, angels, alphabet series and “Asti women”.

    The Asti women are cards created by Angel Asti (1847-1903) an Italian who is credited with introducing the “glamour postcard”. His work for some manufacturers is signed “A. Asti”. According to net sources he also worked for Birn Brothers but his cards are not signed. There are examples on the net from a series H. 1. that are attributed to Asti. I have not yet found any other examples from the H. 3. Series.

    Look at those eyes!

    If you can fill me in with any other information on this card or about Angelo Asti I'd be very grateful!

      The calligraphy of the early XX c is great!
    20. vetraio50 vetraio50, 6 years ago
      I agree mate! A different time, different flow! I love how the ink just bleeds into the card with a light outline too. Proper fountain pens. Handwriting styles have changed immensely. I'm sure it's the same in Bulgaria?
      Thanks again to TheRoper!
