This cabinet card photograph is unusual in that it offers us a view of a room inside of a turn-of-the-century photographer’s studio. The young woman is awkwardly posed and a bit far from the camera but the focus of this image is more about the room rather than it’s occupant. The room is quite cluttered with interesting objects. Note the large statue and statuettes. Hanging from the wall, are a number of fans. Also on the wall are paintings and at least five close-up photographs of attractive women. Hanging next to the large mirror, are two identical interesting lamps. Covering the floor is an animal skin rug as well as a Persian rug. Be sure to take a close look at the furniture. The furniture is nice looking but very bulky. The photographer of this photograph is Karel Hahn who was active in Klatovy, Czechoslovakia, from 1893 until 1943. An inscription on the reverse of the cabinet card indicates that the photograph was taken in 1907.   SOLD
