Splendid little known image, the model's torso reflected in the mirror, two beautiful assistants in long dresses beside her, the designer in cape with long wand-stick pointing out details, the image an Art Nouveau photographic masterpiece.
Paper and image remains clean and well preserved with a fine patina and visual appeal. Beautiful soft visual quality to the image utterly unique to photographic images of this era printed via photogravure methods.
