Vintage Photograph - Sisters, Large Hair Bow, Dolls, Teddy Bear
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….
AGE: C.1910 or so
ITEM: A vintage photograph of two sisters, on the floor, with all their toys surrounding them. Now at first, when I found the photo, I thought either birthday gifts or Christmas gifts BUT, with a magnifying glass, everything is old and worn or shows a bit of age - so this is probably the nursery room or one of the bedrooms for the girls. The elder sister has a big bow in her hair while the other doesn't. Both are dressed in white and both have bobbed short hair indicating an early 1900s period - maybe 1910 or so. Lying on the floor, or being held are the following toys....
On the floor, at the left, is a Teddy Bear - the Teddy's face towards the girls. On the floor, train tracks with an engine at the center. In the littlest girl's hands, a composition doll. In the background, 2 more composition dolls in a push pram (one lying down, one up). In the foreground, on the floor, a book that appears to be an illustrated nursery volume. In the background, a toy washboard that reads "Little Laundress". In the background, there is a table with a baby photo as well as a small child's chair set nearby.
On the back of the photo, written in ink, are the names of the girls, Dorothy & Edna Hughes.
CONDITION: Wonderful image with a rippled lower right edge (more than likely from the black corner holder the photo was in).
PRINTERS MARKS: None.
SIZE: 4-3/4" x 6-3/4" approx.
ORIGINAL FOLDER: No, the photo was found on its own.
