Studio portrait of a young cook

To continue the cooking theme of the previous post, this postcard from Germany is an unusual portrait of a young cook in her kitchen uniform.  Taken in a studio against a rustic painted backdrop, her spotless white clothes glow under careful studio lighting.

Like CDVs in the nineteenth century, individual postcard portraits were often exchanged as tokens of friendship.  That appears to have been the case with this one, although I haven’t managed to decipher the writing on the back.
