Vintage 1933 Chicago Worlds Fair Orotone Electrical Building Framed Art
This is a super nice 1933 Orotone or Goldtone photograph of the Electrical Building at the Chicago World's Fair, nicely framed in an old wooden frame. There is a brown paper backing and a small brass loop for hanging. My photos don't do this beauty justice, the photograph has deep, gold reflections as the light rakes across it.
An Orotone, which is also known as a Goldtone is one of many types of photographic printing processes which can be made from a negative. An Orotone photograph is created by printing a positive on a glass plate pre-coated with a silver gelatin emulsion. Orotones were most famously used by Edward S. Curtis.
Size: Framed: 5 3/4" x 4 3/4"; Grams: 102
Condition: Good vintage - wear to the wooden frame, but slight - the back paper is brittle - the Orotone is in wonderful condition with spots of dirt in the corners
