Johann Strauss II with Turkish Awards Postcard

Johann Strauss II with Turkish Awards Postcard; Black and white, matte finish, obverse illustrating a young Johann Strauss II with the Order of Medjidie around his neck, plus a chain with three miniature medals connected to two button holes on his left collar, inscribed "JOHANN STRAUSS" in reverse type at the bottom right, reverse inscribed "Post Card" in multiple languages and marked "B.K.W.I." at the lower left, 85 mm x 138 mm, edge wear, light soiling on the reverse, better than very fine.   Footnote: Johann Strauss II (October 25, 1825 to June 3, 1899), also known as Johann Baptist Strauss or Johann Strauss, Jr., the Younger, or the Son, was an Austrian composer of light music, particularly dance music and operettas. He composed over four hundred waltzes, polkas, quadrilles, and other types of dance music, as well as several operettas and a ballet. In his lifetime, he was known as "The Waltz King", and was largely responsible for the popularity of the waltz in Vienna during the nineteenth century. Strauss had two younger brothers, Josef and Eduard Staruss, who became composers of light music as well, although they were never as well known as their elder brother. Some of Johann Strauss's most famous works include The Blue Danube, Kaiser-Walzer, Tales from the Vienna Woods, and the Tritsch-Tratsch-Polka. Among his operettas, Die Fledermaus and Der Zigeunerbaron are best known.
