Two new pics to peruse

Discovering a hitherto unknown Carole Lombard portrait from her Paramount p1202 series is always a treat, and so it is with this, p1202-1619, probably from the latter half of 1937, near the end of her seven-plus years at the studio. Simple in its nobility, it shows Carole as a stunning vision in white.

But that's not the only new (or long-unseen) Lombard photo out there. The same seller has this pic, also an 8" x 10", not a p1202 (might it be from Columbia?) but taken some years before. Her prominently displayed sapphire ring is a giveaway:

Each photo has an opening bid of $6, and the auctions close at 3:39 or 3:43 p.m. (Eastern) Monday.

The sapphire ring photo is at To bid on p1202-1619, visit
