A beautifully executed , large, black and white portrait photograph of a seated lady in her evening attire. The attractive young lady obviously comes from a European wealthy background, I presume. She seems to be in a happy and pensive humour. The piece is signed but it is difficult to decipher it ( Dauer or Fauer as the surname, I think ! ). Bought here by us in Zurich , Switzerland many years ago. I am not a fashionista so I am not exactly sure as to which decade it was taken in. Framed in a silver gilt period frame.
Size : of the photograph : 35.3 cm. ( 13 57/64" ) x 24 cm. ( 9 2964"),
of the frame : 53.5 cm. ( 21 1/16" ) x 40 cm. ( 15 3/4" ).
Weight : 1, 450 g. ( 3 lbs. 3 ounces ).
Condition : very good, some very minor rubbing to the gilt ( greatly highlighted by the camera ), there are some reflections from the glass pane in my photos - the photo itself is simply black and white .
