What it is:

Photo (6.5 x 9.25 inches) mounted with a piece of paper (6.5 x 10.25 inches) onto a cardboard frame/backing (11 x 16 inches;  I have cropped most of the backing from this scan).

What I know about it:

I believe the penciled name in the lower right is the photographer.  It’s hard to read, but it appears to say Johnstone.  Otherwise undated and unidentified.

Comments:

This woman doesn’t look dressed so much as upholstered, but I think the overall effect is quite elegant.   With an 11 x 16 backing, this is one of the larger pieces in my collection.

  1. Upholstered, what an interesting description! Very expensive handiwork on that dress…a lot of hours went into making that!

  2. I have started thinking about how it would be received if I took a fan round with me in the summer months. I have been seeing women in Miami carry them now and I think it would be magnificent!

  3. Upholstered! HA! She has such a lovely face and gaze, and looks like someone I’d want to know.

  4. I so agree with dsavannah…this is a woman I would love to meet over tea. She seems fascinating.
