Marianne Raschig was a famous palm-reader operating in Germany between the wars.

Raschig would record her subjects hand print in ink, and have the subject sign it. She collected over 2000 hand prints during her lifetime, many belonging to famous artists, writers, actors, musicians, and scientists such as Albert Einstein, Marlene Dietrich and Louis Armstrong, as well as members of the general population, who would have their palms analysed to reveal personality traits.

This print is of the architect and art director Franz Jaffe's palm, and is signed by him. Jaffe was known for creating the Florentine architecture for the set of the 1919 horror film ‘The Plague in Florence’.
