FAMILY PORTRAIT : CHILD HOLDING DOLL : VINTAGE PHOTO : SAN PAOLO, BRAZIL (1932)

This vintage photograph is portrait of a handsome family. The children are adorable. One of the girls is holding a doll. The youngest child is sitting in a miniature chair. There is an inscription in the top left hand corner of the image. The inscription is written to “Aunt Emilia” and was written in San Paolo, Brazil, in 1932. The photographer of this photo is identified in a light embossed stamp that is barely visitble in the bottom right hand corner of the image. Proper magnification will likely result in identification of the photographer and studio. A look at the reverse of the image reveals that it was once a resident of a photo album. This photograph measures about 6 1/2″ x 9″ and is in very good condition (see scans).

PORTRAIT OF AN ADORABLE LITTLE GIRL WEARING TRADITIONAL CLOTHING (PORTUGAL / BRAZIL)

This vintage photograph features a beautiful young Portuguese or Brazilian girl wearing traditional clothing. Her dress is very detailed and pretty. She is well accessorized. Her jewelry includes a number of necklaces and a ring. I find her head covering fascinating and unusual. The writing on the reverse of this photograph is Portuguese. It is written that this girl’s name is “Maria Amelia Porto” and that the photo was taken in either 1910 or 1916. An illegibility issue does not allow distinguishing which of the two years are written. This lovely portrait has been trimmed and is in very good condition (see scans).

PORTRAIT OF A PRETTY YOUNG WOMAN : TRIESTE, ITALY : EARLY CDV FROM THE (1870’s)

ot

This oval carte de visite  photograph features an attractive young woman. Her hair is styled and she is wearing jewelry. The woman appears to be affluent. The photographer of this cdv is Guglielmo Sebastianutti (1825-1881). He has one portrait in England’s National Portrait Gallery. The portrait above is an early cdv image. It is evident that the photograph is from the early cdv era because the Sebastianutti  died in 1881 and because the years he won photography awards reveal the approximate time this photo was taken. The reverse of the photograph lists a number of awards won by the photographer. He was recognized in Berlin, Germany (1865), Paris, France (1867), Hamburg, Germany (1868), Groningen, Netherlands (1869), and Vienna, Austria (1870), Since Sebastianutti’s photography career ended in 1878, it is clear that this image was taken between 1870 and 1878. Sebastianutti’s studio was located in the city of Trieste, which is a port city located in northeast Italy. During Sebastianutti’s career, he partnered with celebrated German photographer, Franz Benque (1841-1921). Benque moved to Trieste in 1864 and partnered with Sebastianutti in the opening of a photography studio. At the time Sebastianutti was watchmaker. In 1868, Benque married Sebastianutti’s step-daughter, Isabella. Despite the success of his studio, Benque returned to Germany in 1869, and opened a studio with his cousin, Conrad Kindermann, in Hamburg. Benque must have had wanderlust because in 1870, he immigrated with his family to Brazil. There, he partnered with Alberto Henschel (1827-1882) and operated studios in Bahia and Pernambuco. Benque’s studios gained the reputation of being the best in all of Brazil. In 1878, Benque must have had another episode of wanderlust which propelled him back to Trieste and a partnership with Sebastianutti. Benque must have had one more “relocation” left in him. In 1903 he moved to Villach, Austria. This cdv image is in very good condition (see scans).
