Italian Royal Families / Re: Identification photos etc.
« on: August 31, 2013, 12:49:34 PM »
And I got them from heinrichixx or whatever his name is. He must have got them from piksplus and later claimed they were from a noble family album. Now THAT is interesting, hehe. He is mostly claiming to get his cards, photos, memorabilia, etc. from noble families which is apparantly not always the case. He lately bought a few royalty cards from me, too and re-sold them. And I AM definitely not a noble woman. lol It's sad how some people try to make money with such methods. Anyway, like CarolathHabsburg said, the images are beautiful and I'm glad I got them for my collection. And thanks Veronica for the info! :-)

I remember the original ebay listing of these CDVs. There was no mention of an album of noble procedence in it.

Oh, it IS mentioned. I still have access to the original listing as the I am the buyer. I can get you a screenshot if you want.

I guess they were labelled wrong already in the album. They are definitely not Princesses of Bourbon but certainly members of a noble or at least wealthy family.
So I would have bought them anyway, I just wanted to check if anyone knows about them or which noble Italian family they are from.

I'm not sure this time. I think I have seen them before.

Can anyone identify these noble ladies? The photos are coming from a photo album from a noble household and on the back of the photos there is written 'Princess Bourbon'. The photographer is LeJeune in Naples.

Does anyone know who this man is? A suggestion by a friend was Emanuel of Salm-Salm but I have my doubts.

Hello,

It came with other photos on the Habsburgs.
I have found one or two photos of Elisabeth or Marie Sophia where she looks quite the same but which were not convincing me.

It is  -by the way- a cdv by Adolf Ost, Wien.

Ofcourse it's possible it got mixed up with the Habsburg cdv's by mistake !

Jan

This is neither Elisabeth nor one of her sisters. And they never went to Adolf Ost's studio.

Totally agree with you, Yelena. Photos for family would have been to risky because sooner or later, some photos might have got lost and reach the public. But the point was not that she was afraid someone could see her. She simply didn't WANT to see herself on a photo from the age of 30 on. She was most beautiful around that age and she knew from that point on, things would get worse again. It would have felt for her like watching her beauty disappear AND having proof of it in a photo. If I remember correctly, there is a quote from Elisabeth in a book where she says something like that.

Based upon earlier photos or paintings. The black dress may be the one worn at that time.

If so, then only based on earlier paintings. Because by the time she wore black, after Rudolf's death, she had already stopped having her photo taken.

I think with all the black dresses, it's nearly impossible to say which one she wore that day for sure. Another mystery to add to the Empress' life. ;-)

Around that time, Elisabeth didn't allow any photos being taken of her anymore, so I doubt that.

Well, it seems to be an old newspaper article and photo, so it's not sure it still exists. Maybe somebody knows for sure.

That's true, I haven't thought about this!! This photo can be from not much time after Sissi's death. Well, I must correct my statement, I didn't imagine that there was a photo of the dress (I only can remember a painting of that event and the Empress wearing a black gown). I expect that it has survived to the two disastrous World Wars  :( More info about the whereabouts of it will be very welcome!  :)

You mean the painting by Gyula Benczur, I guess:
