Sheet music titled "Eine Kleine Freundin" ("A Little Girlfriend") with color lithographic cover by Wolfgang Ortmann (1885-1969) hauntingly evoking the decadence of post World War I Berlin. The cover is approximately 13 ¼ x 10 ¾ inches and is dated 1920 on verso. Several short tears (archival tape repair) the largest being 1½ inches. An uncommon item in good (well-used) condition with tears noted. One of the most prolific illustrators of German sheet music following World War I, Ortmann has developed a strong following among collectors. Lehár is best known for his operetta "The Merry Widow."
