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.

Bids begin at $25 for this Lombard rarity, with the auction closing at 4:05 p.m. (Eastern) Saturday. To bid or learn more, visit
