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.

Shipping and insurance costs will be added to the price and must be paid for by the buyer. Pennsylvania buyers must pay appropriate local sales tax. International clients are responsible for their VAT and other custom's oriented charges.
