I’m not certain whether I’ve run this photo of Carole Lombard before — I have a feeling I have, though at this stage of the day I really have no desire to check. All I know is that this pic probably is from between 1932 and 1934 (I’m pretty certain the “C” in the lower right-hand corner stands for Columbia, and the thick, shiny stockings Carole is wearing are typical of her hosiery at that time), and it’s rather stunning.
The photo is from the original negative, although the print is a new one. The seller adds it’s 8″ x 10″ and in “excellent condition … with one light crease in the upper left corner. The photograph is fiber-based paper and shows some light age toning.”
It’s being sold, not auctioned, for $19.95; if unsold, the sale will continue through 6:13 p.m. (Eastern) next Monday. Bid or learn more by visiting http://www.ebay.com/itm/CAROLE-LOMBARD-Sexy-Actress-VINTAGE-PHOTO-FROM-ORIG-NEGATIVE-Later-Print-/371266715347?hash=item5671387ed3.
