Swiss Skeli Adventure N° 308

Here we see Swiss Skeli & La Catrina in a typical Bernese Sunday costume, worn by the Bernese on festive occasions. It has remained practically unchanged since the second half of the 19th century.

The women wears a black smock and velvet bodice. Under it, a white shirt, pleated in the front and a silk damask or changeant taffeta apron. A black velvet cap with a horsehair starched spread veil completes the look.

The men wear a socalled “Mutz”. The Mutz is made of smooth velvet and trimmed with a red astrakhan braid, parallel to it a narrow white braid.

This postcard is from the 1900’s. Unpublished.


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.
