A strand of pearls, fur, and an elaborate chapeau festooned with feathers compliments the high-fashion garments worn by this unknown woman from society, a portrait executed by the important professional Scottish photographer William Crooke. This very fine hand-pulled, Chine-collé photogravure was printed in 1897 and included in the important German publication Die Kunst in der Photographie.
Condition: Very good.
Scattered areas of light foxing to plate margins with more of this visible on plate verso. Bumping to upper left corner and slight crease to top right corner. Please inspect both photographs with listing. (please email if you require additional photos)
