PORTRAIT OF A WEALTHY FAMILY: MOM IS QUITE BEJEWELED

This family portrait was taken at an unidentified studio. The family members are very well dressed and appear to be well-to-do. The mother in this photograph is very pretty. She is also quite bejeweled. Note her two necklaces (one with a locket), her collar pin, her watch (pinned to her dress), and her four rings. The little girl in this image is adorable. Be sure to notice her hair treatment. Are those wide ribbons in her hair? The child is wearing an interesting dress that resembles a Queen’s robe.  She is also wearing two bracelets, a necklace with a locket, and at least two rings. Perhaps the gentleman in this photograph is a jeweler. Lets hope so, for the sake of his finances.

  1. Thanks as always for this posting too. Very beautifully dressed family, and such a classic pose to have them all in. ❤️ I’m wondering if the mother made her daughter’s dress, which is both unusual and elegant, as is the abundance of jewelry in the picture. I think people must have worn those jewelry pieces which they perhaps felt proudest of having, or which may have been inherited in their family. Or yes, a jeweler’s family could be possibly so.

  2. How to really say that these are wealthy people. My family members had pictures taken a lot back during this time period and they were just middle class.

    • You are correct. I can not guarantee that this family is wealthy. The conjecture that this family is well-to-do is based on their clothing and their accessories, including jewelry. It is interesting and enjoyable to look at these images and to try to hypothesize about the people in the image based on whatever evidence you can discover.
