This vintage photograph of a slightly risqué nude is in a larger format than an old postcard and fits more closely with the very long cabinet style. The blonde model is posed in front of a rich, maroon colored drape. Her hair is short with Marseille waves with a ribbon tied on top. Her cheeks are blushed and her slightly smiling lips have a pale pink lipstick. She has a string of beads around her neck that drape across her bare breasts and stomach. The beads are tinted green. 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 5/8” which doesn’t quite fit the Paris panel or promenade card criteria. It is in good condition with minimal edge and corner wear. The back has some pink smudges that were probably the color used for some of the tinting.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
