Swiss Skeli Adventure N° 249

Here we see Swiss Skeli at the original site of the Rudolf von Erlach Monument. It is one of the few equestrian statues in Switzerland. Joseph Simon Volmar (1796 - 1865) designed this monument of Rudolf von Erlach as a conqueror in the Battle of Laupen in 1339. It is in the style of statues of great emperors of Italy such as Marcus Aurelius. In the selfie from Swiss Skeli it is in its original place in the middle of the Münsterplatz where it was unveiled on May 12, 1849. It stayed there 112 years until it was deemed to “disturb traffic and car parking”.

This postcard was postmarked from 1914. Published: November 10, 2022.


All cards mounted on white 250 g/m² paper with trimmed edges. Vintage postcard, overpainted with acrylic paint, H x B cm, no frame. Signed and dated in pencil on back. This can be easily erased in the event you want to use the card.

The cards are packaged in cellophane with an informative text about the history of the image on each card and when it was first published.

Please note that since these are antique postcards, some might contain small tears, pinholes and/or scratches. Fleshy tries her best to lovingly craft each card, but sometimes a tear might be too close to the overall subject to cut it out. The actual colors might differ slightly from your monitor.

Every postcard is a small, unique work of art!

Delivery throughout Europe and overseas is with normal postal mail in cardboard envelopes so nothing should bend. Postage and packaging are calculated at checkout.
