Vera Richkova ...
"Bewitching Asiatic Legend," "The Magnetic Beauty," "The Temptrous," "The Russian Wildcat."

Vintage Burlesque Model: Vera Richkova. She was billed under many names: 'the Russian Marlene Dietrich, 'The Blonde Tigress from the Ukraine' and 'the Contessa' plus those in green above'. Supposedly a half-Russian/half Mongolian Princess daughter of a Tartar Kahn. Some of her burlesque acts were the 'Black Angel,' 'the Desert Song Dance,' and another 'the Mongolian Vampire.'



Tinted Photo 1: Miss Vera is seen here in her Vampire Dance costume she used for said dance. Her costume looks more in line of a Raks Sharki (Belly Dance) costume however.
