Description: The moon. Five cabinet cards. There was a widespread use of the curved shape of an almost quarter moon as an actual studio prop, as well as a motif to show the dexterity of the photographer in making composite images. These images are widespread in photo postcards (examples in Lots 172 and following) but are rare in cabinet cards. a) A woman is smoking, probably an actress. "Complements of Zorana" in pencil on the verso. By Obermüller & Kern.b) A father is seated on the moon with his children, with a background of stars and a comet, by Bassaporte, Evora [Portugal.] c) Two children with flowers. This is titled "Mondfexe," by von Erche & Liersch, Berlin. d) Sometimes the moon has a face. Here a woman tickles the face under the chin.e) A woman reclines with her hands behind her head..
