EDITORS COMMENTS
Step into the whimsical world of the late 1890s with this charming and humorous postcard featuring a frog in human clothing. Dressed in a tailcoat, waistcoat, and striped trousers, this anthropomorphic amphibian dons a pink bow tie and a monocle, adding a touch of elegance and sophistication to his green scaly skin. The frog's floral patterned waistcoat and blue dress shirt complete his human-like attire, making for an amusing contrast between his reptilian nature and his human appearance. The postcard, which dates back to the late 1890s, showcases the popular trend of anthropomorphism during this era. This comic and humorous representation of a frog in human clothing was a common theme in art and popular culture during this time, reflecting the playful and lighthearted spirit of the age. The intricate detailing of the frog's costume, from the buttons on his waistcoat to the folds of his dress shirt, adds to the realism of the image. The postcard's background is adorned with a simple, yet elegant, floral pattern, adding to the overall charm and appeal of this unique and fascinating piece of history. This postcard is a delightful reminder of the imaginative and whimsical world of the late 1800s, where the boundaries between human and animal were blurred, and the power of creativity and humor could bring joy and wonder to everyday life.
