italian cc 1 This cabinet card photograph captures a lovely couple posing for their portrait. They are very well dressed. Their attire is clearly aimed at keeping warm on a winter day. The couple appears to be affluent. Their clothing, including the young woman’s furs, lead me to that conclusion. The man and woman in this photograph, are displaying a very interesting expression. In my opiniion, they appear to be somewhat amused as they gaze at something or someone they deem a bit odd. Feel free to leave a comment concerning your interpretation of this couple’s facial expressions. This portrait photo was taken at a studio in Venice, Italy. The photographers were Giuseppe and Luitzi Vianelli. An advertisement for the Vianelli Brothers indicates that during their career they had photographed the Royal House’s of Italy, Germany, England, and Greece. The ad also states that the pair had won many photography honors. The ads appeared in publications dating between 1896 and 1899. This cabinet card photo measures about 8″ x 3 3/4″ and is in very good condition (see scans).   (SOLD)
