This is Carole Lombard in Paramount p1202-1323, from late 1936 or early '37. It's one of six original pics of her now up for auction in sepia, looking something like this:

This is p1202-1563, one of many showing Lombard with her beloved Palomino gelding Pico. I don't believe I've seen this one before:

The cheapest of the six, at least for opening bids, is this 1933 image of Lombard in a dark gown. It begins at $150:

The other two photos have substantially higher initial bids. This Paramount pic by Don English, showing Carole posing near a window (during her marriage to William Powell, I believe), has an initial bid of $500:
