35 post cards of the ottoman Sultans

A very nice set of post cards from the early 20th century. The set is verry complete with a card for almost every Sultan that ever reigned. The set was made before the reign of Sultan Vahdettin.

The cards were made by a very famous post card publisher, Max Fruchtermann (see additional information below).

The card with Sultan Muhammad Khan IV is also in the possession of the British Museum.

Max Fruchtermann, Istanbul (Constantinople), Turkey, 1852–1918 (Photographer, Publisher)

Max Fruchtermann (1852–1918) was an early publisher of Ottoman Empire postcards. He was born in 1852 in Kalucz on the eastern border of Austria-Hungary. In 1867, he moved to Constantinople (Istanbul) and began to produce postcards in 1895. Because of the vogue for “Orientalism,” Fruchtermann’s cards became very popular. His early postcards were hand-colored, but he began to produce color cards in 1897 that were printed by Emil Pinkau. Later postcard series were printed by Fingerle Freudenberg in Rehydt. In addition to his view-cards, he produced a large series of figure studies in native costumes. The disruption of the First World War caused his bankruptcy. After his death, his son, Paul, continued to run his postcard shop until 1966 when the entire remaining inventory was sold off.
