An old setting, a new angle

carole lombard p1202-862

Over the years, this Carole Lombard image -- Paramount p1202-862, from mid-1934 -- has become fairly common among collectors (understandably so, given Carole's vivacious pose). And perhaps you've seen other shots from that session, such as the more contemplative p1202-857:

But here's a portrait taken in that curved chair, in front of blinds, which I've never seen before...and I'm guessing it'll be new to you, too. Unlike the other pics, this is horizontal:

It's p1202-851, and if you can't make out the number from that image, here it is in close-up:

The seller labels it "elegant and oversized" (11" x 14"). It's not original, but was struck from the original negative on glossy paper, in near-mint condition.
