Vintage hand-tinted portrait of a smiling woman in an Art Deco gold metal frame with filigree trim, a brown velvet backing, gold brocade board inside, and original glass. The woman is wearing a lovely 1930s dress and has her hair in fashionable waves with a side part. Her hands are folded demurely and she's turned to the side to smile for the photographer. The photo is dated and inscribed on the back in pencil script:

Xmas Dec. 1936
15 yrs. 3 mnths.

Probably taken at a local portrait studio, printed on thick cotton-rag photo paper, and carefully handtinted in warm sepias and pinks.

About 11" x 9"

Everything is in lovely shape, although there is a very small tear in the bottom edge of the print, as you can see on the last photo. No cracks or scratches in the glass and the frame is solid.

** note: if you'd prefer the photo without the frame, just convo me and I'll adjust the listing and shipping.
