Something 'new' in the p1202

Discovering a heretofore unseen (by me, at least) Carole Lombard p1202 photo is akin to finding buried treasure. And so it is with the pic above, officially p1202-407 from early 1933.

Even better, more information on the photo is on its back:

BACK TO SATIN. Black as ebony, simple and sleek, is the evening gown worn by CAROLE LOMBARD, leading player in Paramount's "FROM HELL TO HEAVEN."

It measures 8" x 10", is a vintage single-weight original, and was originally part of the George Smoots collection. (Most of the rest of his photos were donated to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences' Margaret Herrick library.) It's said to be in excellent condition... and now it can be yours.

Bidding opens at $39.99, and the auction closes at 10:33 p.m. (Eastern) Sunday. If you'd like to bid or learn more about this stylish, sexy item, visit https://www.ebay.com/itm/CAROLE-LOMBARD-in-BLACK-SATIN-DRESS-w-BARE-BACK-Original-1933-PARAMOUNT-Photo/372441106307?hash=item56b7384783.
