A WITCH AND HER CAULDRON :TIC TAC TOE DRESS LADLE & PUNCH BOWL : CABINET CARD

This cabinet card features an old woman sitting at a table, using a ladle to fill four glasses with a dark colored drink (potion). She is taking the drink from a pot on the table. The woman is wearing a most unusual dress. The dress has a tic tac toe like symbol on it. It would be interesting to know the meaning of the symbol. It would also be interesting to know what is happening in this photograph. Is the woman an actress on stage? Was she simply posed by a studio photographer using his props?  This cabinet card presents quite a mystery. (SOLD)
