Dancers in Green

This German card shows five male ice skaters in green gowns.  Are they belly dancer or goddess gowns? The card was probably a black and white photo, hand colored to add the vibrant gowns, flowers and head dress. 

This one is similar in nature to this one and this one.  All German cards with crazies on ice skates.  does anyone know the translation for the caption?


  1. This is hilarious. Just about all of the German postcards I have are crashingly boring. This is a treasure. It says it's a scene from the ice ballet, The Funny Doll (which I've never heard of.)

  2. Thanks, Christine. I have several wacky German cards. They must be from a series of ice ballets.
