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.   (SOLD)

Young Woman with Bad Jewelry in Buffalo, New York

charmThis young woman is  wearing a necklace with a charm portrait of another young woman. The necklace and charm appear to have been added after the photograph was taken. The photographer is Ryerse of Buffalo, New York. In my opinion, the photographer earns high marks for creativity but poor marks for artistry. To view other photographs by Ryerse, click on the category “Photographer: Ryerse”.
