A beautiful photo postcard from Picturegoer, numbered 529.
in this condition sold recently for USD 25,16
Marlene Dietrich and her famous Lenci dolls;) vintage Ross Verlag postcard sold recently on ebay for USD 28. Very nice collector piece.
And here is the one that looks very shady to me;) very strange signature - I am almost sure it's a fake - mainly due to the hooked "M" and peculiarly bloated "D"; kind of signature I cannot associate with any period of Marlene's career. On Avenue Montaigne she used to sign fun photos "mdietrich" and in her early hollywood times it was rather full "Marlene Dietrich" and mainly in green ink. Black felt-tip pen in this combination looks very suspicious to me. But, who knows, I might be wrong.
This (fake to me) postcard sold for EUR 74,90.

Marlene Dietrich with her beloved dolls she never parted with;
Thursday, 11 August 2011
I love tracking Marlene Dietrich - related items' sale prices. It's an additional hobby to my postcard collecting. I am especially happy when postcards and pics I already have grow in value and watching past auctions results is a very convenient way to estimate how much my present collection might be worth. In this hobby, the market is unceasingly regulated by changing moods and fashion; the outcome is sometimes surprising to me.
Some of my summer autograph finds from the inevitable - must-watch & must-keep-an-eye-on ebay :
Beautiful Marlene Dietrich in her fur from the Shanghai Express movie; postcard from Ross Luxus series and the signature from her later years, probably Avenue Montaigne period. sold in July for over EUR 62
Beautiful English postcard with an early green ink autograph, sold in July 2011 for EUR 40, 90
Another old postcard signed by the star, this one from Ross Verlag,
sale result: EUR 41.62
Ross Verlag, beautifully signed by Marlene, went in June 2011 for EUR 58.87.
And a litte scrap of paper with the signature on the border. Still a nice collector's piece, sold for over USD 21
It's a great summer season for a postcard collector like me. I happened to purchase some awesome English photo postcards manufactured for Picturegoer. There are many more to come (I hope). In the meantime I added the finds to the online gallery dedicated to Marlene.
Here is the section where I store pics of Picturegoer. I wish I only had more time to upload all my beautiful Marlene's here:
