1920's Art Deco Exquisite African American Bi-racial Woman ~ Original Photo :
Up for sale is an original old photograph / real photo postcard (rppc) of a Filipina / African American (bi-racial) woman from the Art Deco period. This beautiful lady is identified on the back as Celedonia Pa...? and looks as fashionable as she can be! The hair, the jewelry, shoes, the fan she's holding, the dress with exaggerated shoulders... she is on point!
The photo dates to the mid 1920's - 1930's and measures approximately 5.5" x 3.5".
I have received emails regarding this photograph identifying her dress as a "TERNO" which is a traditional Filipina dress. The thought was this would automatically mean this woman was Filipina. I can see how one could easily come to that conclusion... and you may be right... but just because you put on traditional dress, doesn't mean you're 100% that nationality. This photo came from a lot of African American family photographs that I acquired... not a Filipino family. I can tell you from my personal experience, that I happen to be of African American descent and if I had a nickel for every time someone thought I was Filipina, I'd be rich. I really do appreciate the information about the traditional Terno dress and was happy to add it to the description. But short of an interview with this woman in the photo or a DNA test... we'll never really know for sure.
