Antique Convex Glass Gold Oval Frame Hand Colored Photograph of Young Girl Communion
This is an absolutely stunning antique hand colored photograph from the late 1800s/early 1900s. During this time it was common practice to bring life to black and white photographs by hand coloring the image. I believe this photo is of a young girl on the day of her first communion. The original photo of the girl has been hand colored to bring out the tones in her face, the gold tone of her jewelry, and the green of the leaves. There are also more subtle colors throughout.
The ornate tin frame is in excellent vintage condition. The glass is also in great shape with no major scratches or cracks. It could use a deep clean if the buyer so chooses. There is a wire on the back for hanging.
There are 2 spots of what looks like gold paint on the glass, on top of the dress area. These look like they could be scraped off but I'm leaving that up to the buyer.
*in the photo there is a noticeable glare from the lighting/softbox

Each item shows only light, minimal signs of wear/age unless otherwise noted in the listing. Take a close look at all the photos! (but also keep in mind I used a very detailed close up lens so "flaws" will stand out more in the photos than they will when the item is seen in person.)
