Catalog photo from the collection of the Altman Galleries, Hollywood circa 1920s.
Altman provided furnishings and antiques for mansions on Sunset as well as props for studio sets. More about this catalog.
It almost looks like an antebellum dress with marabou, lace, fabric roses and a giant velvet bow. Item number 4052. This is one of the rare catalog images that offers a glimpse of the gallery itself. Nothing fancy here, just a place to display the objects.
Photo 8" x 10", gloss finish, mounted on linen with 1" border and two hole punch.
