Framed Sepia Art Deco Wedding Photograph from 1931 Large
This wonderful sepia photo was taken on June 2, 1931. The couple Herman and Jan Welling are flanked by, Anna and Harvey. They were the matron of honor and best man at this wedding. Presented in a wonderful period frame like the ones used to frame Maxfield Parrish and Fox prints of the period. The bride has the most lovely Lace veil on. It is long and created a train behind her as she walked down the isle. She has a single strand of pearls and opera length gloves on. The bouquet is comprised of Roses, Ferns and lots of ribbon. At that time of year the roses are blooming here in New Hampshire and the ferns are up young and tender which makes me think this may have been hand made by a family member or the bride herself. Anna the matron of honor is wearing a period drop waist lace gown that has a wonderful zig zag hem at the bottom. She is wearing a spring sun bonnet and has opera length gloves as well. Her necklace is a cut faceted strand probably Czech or Austrian glass. I can't make out the flowers but it was a lush rounded bouquet. Both of the ladies have white period T-strap pumps on. The men are attired in suits and tie. They each have a hankie and corsage on their left breast sides. This is certainly a view into the Art Deco era and Roaring Twenties era fashion.
CONDITION: If your looking for a period frame for one of your family pieces this one is very nice. All parts of this are in very nice condition. It really could stand being secured better on the backside and covered with paper. If you would like that done for you, I would be happy to do that.
DIMENSIONS: Frame outside 15 ½" x 12" Inside measurement: 13 ¾" x 10 ¼"
