About this work

Description

Postcard (probably from the early 1920s) showing le Prince Colibri standing with a cane next to a wodden chair with embroidered upholstery. There were at least 4 men who went by the name of le Prince Colibri (and one Princess). This is probably Dimitri Ossopoff. Although his date of birth is given here as 1883 several other sources seem to agree on 1882. The card would probably have been sold as a souvenir at places where they were exhibited as part of a freak or variety show.
