A lovely young lady - she looks like she is just 12 or 13. Her expression may seem sad or just contemplative. She is wearing a fur collar and a beret with carved wooden button. The photograph has been tinted slightly, so her cheeks appear rosy, her eyes a deep blue gray, her hair is dark blond.
The photograph is 8" x 10", the leather covered frame is 10" x 12". The frame does have wear, especially at the corners. The frame has a prop, and on the inside is an NRA (National Recovery Administration). This was a government effort to regulate prices and ensure fair wages during the Great Depression. It was only in effect in 1934.
Who is she? I have no idea. The frame is sealed, probably by the photography studio. The photo has slipped down about 1/4". You may wish to open it and see if there is more information inside. This came with a large box of items from a midwest estate - the family names were Sterling and Hauptman.
