Remind you of someone you know?...Printed on a sheet of white glass this beautifully colored photograph has been well preserved behind its glass frame and is ready for admiration once again. The old fashion beauty is clearly a gem and has glowing features.Soft and feminine the porcelain like skin and crisp photography are a work of art.

The frame is slightly convex and has a thick velvet backing and stand. The etched gold is crisp and has a variety of pretty patterns in diamond shapes and feathery scrolls along the top and sides.

It measures 4 1/2 x 3 1/2 " and is weighty with thick glass and hardware.

Autochrome (1907 - 1935)

Without doubt, the most beautiful color process ever invented, the autochrome (Brothers Lumière, 1907) was the first commercially available 'true color' process.

Since the Lumiére brothers made the autochrome available in June 1907, photographers began worldwide experimenting with the new process. The autochrome's basic principle was the creation of a color experience by addition, opposite of techniques that produced colors through substraction.

The various colour grains where made of dyed potato starch spread onto the glassplates. Their disadvantage of a visible grain structure became one of their greatest advantages when used in the hands of pictorial photographers.
