Christine Nilsson

An 1912 cigarette card - No. 31 in the Will's Musical Celebrities series - featuring a photograph by Elliot & Fry of the soprano Christine Nilsson.


Christine Nilsson born Sweden 20th August, 1843 died Sweden 20th November 1921.


She made her debut during 1864 and was what would be called now days – a mega star.


While she did not make any records there are numerous photos to attest to the fact that she possessed great charm and beauty.
