As promised, more Carole Lombard images now available via eBay, beginning with this one, Lombard looking sleek and stylish (albeit with furs), befitting the heiress she portrayed in the 1932 Columbia film "No More Orchids":

Heritage Movie Posters, which is selling the item, describes it as: "Vintage gelatin silver, single weight, and glossy photo. An unrestored photo with a clean overall appearance. It may have general signs of use, such as slight edge wear, small corner bumps, pinholes, or very minor tears. Light scratches. details. Very Fine-."

Something else that's "very fine" is the opening bid price -- 99 cents -- but for a vintage Lombard pic, you know it won't last that long. Bids conclude at 10:54 a.m. (Eastern) next Monday, and expect multiple bids for this over the next week.

Next, Paramount p1202-1164:

That's Carole on the phone from her dressing room at Paramount in 1935 (with her head beautifully framed among the flowers). According to the seller, this 8" x 10" originally ran in Architectural Digest. Bidding begins at $40, with bids closing at 7:10 p.m. (Eastern) Thursday.

Next up, Lombard with a Paramount artist named Eric Stone, showing off his tribute to her:

The photo also has a Dec. 29, 1931 stamp from the NEA syndicate.

We have no idea whatever happened to the rag portrait of Carole, but this 8" x 10" is available, with an opening bid of $100, and bidding slated to end at 7:01 p.m. (Eastern) Thursday.

Finally, a Lombard portrait that in itself isn't all that uncommon, but the source is interesting:

It's from NBC radio, specifically its famed (and now gone) Los Angeles headquarters at Sunset and Vine...
