About This Image
Little girl has a bird on her hand, probably a canary. In original seals with Claudet's information on the back of the stereo. The scan really does not due this image justice (somethings just don't scan well). Most of what looks like flaws are overemphasized greatly or, in the case of the light spot on the woman's dress at left, is simply not in the original. The spotting at the top rim is likely to be on the glass. Beautifully tinted and gilded (as in the bird cage, bracelet and fan). A marvelous and magical family portrait.
