Few things more please Carole Lombard memorabilia hunters than finding (to them) previously unseen Paramount p1202 portraits, poses that prove her prowess as one of the beauties of classic Hollywood. That's the case above with p1202-570, likely snapped during 1933 with Carole stunning in a white gown at the bottom of a staircase, every inch an Olympian goddess.
But that's not the only such image on display today -- take a look at this one, p1202-1130:
Think you've seen that one before? Perhaps you've mixed it up with another, more common image from that 1935 session where Carole wore a white suit, p1202-1133:
What's more, both 570 and 1130 are vintage and at auction on eBay.
The former measures 7.5" x 9.5"; the seller describes its condition as "Good. All borders have been trimmed. Some light creases. There is a marked line forming a square" around Lombard. The opening bid is $18.99, and the auction is set to end at 8:37 p.m. (Eastern) next Tuesday.

The latter is from a different seller. It's 7.25" x 9.75", and the seller states it "has been trimmed; has glue and paper remnants on back, a crease in the bottom corner and a little paper loss in the bottom part of the photo on back."
