To start the new year, Lombard and Hurrell

Carole Lombard, photographed by George Hurrell -- what could be more iconic, or more sublime?

I'm pretty certain we've shown this portrait before, but it's resurfaced on eBay, and it continues to allure. Witness, beginning with this close-up of Carole and following with Hurrell's stamp, the back of the photo and even the closest thing to a blemish.

Doesn't that simply wow you?

It's an 11" x 14" double-weight gelatin silver vintage, in very good condition for a portrait now more than eight decades old. There are some faint lines, but that's about it.

The price is steep -- hey, a vintage oversized Lombard Hurrell doesn't come cheap. Specifically, the seller is seeking $500 for it. However, you can make an offer, and perhaps you may be lucky. Go to https://www.ebay.com/itm/11X14-GLOSSY-SILVER-GELATIN-CAROLE-LOMBARD-GEORGE-HURRELL-STAMPED-1937/123571997546?hash=item1cc5770b6a:g:16MAAOSwUqJbZ-GD for more.

Happy new year, folks. Welcome to our first entry of 2019!
