PRETTY FASHIONISTA : FAMOUS PHOTOGRAPHER ANDREW PATERSON : GLASGOW, SCOTLAND

This cabinet card features a pretty young woman beautifully dressed. This fashionista knew how to put together a wardrobe. She is wearing a lovely dark coat with fur accents. She also has her hands in a fur muff. Her accessories include a cameo locket and an umbrella. There is also a white object that can be seen on the top right part of the subject’s coat. It is part of the photo and not a tear or scrape. Is it a handkerchief? A dying flower? I can not identify it. This cabinet card portrait was taken at the Paterson’s Photographic Company in Glasgow, Scotland.  (SOLD)

A PRETTY WOMAN WEARING A MINK STOLE : ITS THE WHOLE MINK : NOT JUST THE FUR

This uncommon real photo postcard features a pretty woman wearing a mink stole. Shockingly, it is not just a fur stole, it’s a whole mink. The animals head, feet and tail are all included. PETA would not approve. Personally, I make it a policy to never wear anything with a face. However, this postcard is from the c.1920’s and wearing a whole mink was likely not politically incorrect or a violation of social values and social norms. This is an unusual postcard. The photo has exceptional clarity and the photographer posed the young woman and her stole excellently.  (SOLD)

A DOZEN WORKING MEN HAVING LUNCH : DOGNEVILLE, FRANCE : VINTAGE PHOTOGRAPH

This vintage photograph features a group of twelve men posing for their photo as they eat a meal. The men have bowls and cups and one of the men is holding a ladle for a large bowl or pot that sits on the table. The men are dressed similarly. Six of them are wearing berets. These guys are certainly expressive. The gent in the middle of the top row looks shocked and fearful; as if he saw something disturbing. The fellow in the middle of the middle row looks impish. What brings these men together? Perhaps, they are workers at a factory having lunch. They may also be soldiers or even prisoners. An inscription on the reverse of the photo indicates that the picture was taken in Dogneville, a town located in northeastern France. This photograph has excellent clarity.  The photo is trimmed and measures about 4.25 x 3.25 in. The image is in overall good condition (see scans). (SOLD)
