This vintage photograph of a nude young woman is in a larger format than an old postcard and fits more closely with the very long cabinet style. The blonde model is seated on what appears to be an upholstered or carpet covered bench. A wide ribbon is tied around her short hair that has Marseille waves. Her cheeks are blushed and her lips have a rosy pink lipstick. Her legs are crossed and one hand rests gently in her lap. She has a string of beads around her neck that drape across her bare breasts. The beads are tinted a golden yellow. I believe this is considered a hand tinted, gelatin silver print. The style and size are similar to photos by the photographer Charles Wesley Gilhousen (1867-1929) but this has no copyright or other identifying information.
It measures about 3 ¾” by 7 ¾” which doesn’t quite fit the Paris panel or promenade card criteria. It is in good condition with minimal edge and corner wear.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
