    Two Stereoview Cards of Naughty Ladies, circa 1880s. Naughty is in the eye of the beholder, and this sample of risqué stereocards covers the full range. In the first, a fully dressed woman stands in her bedroom lifting her long skirt to the knee, to reveal a glimpse of bloomers and one high-topped shoe. In the second, a nearly naked woman sits on a chaise in a provocative pose. Stereocard mounts do not reveal the subjects' nor the photographers' names, but the legend "X158 In the Privacy of Her Boudoir" is printed along the lower edge of the first image described above. From the Emory A. Cantey Western Collection.

    Condition: Mount cards show the usual wear; heavy crease at upper left of first image. Generally fine.

    You reach a customer base that is in many ways completely unknown to the major auction houses, and your marketing to this base is as professional as one could hope for. As I continue to wind down my holdings.
