CHARLIE CHAPLIN (2)

Vintage 3.5 x 5.5 double-weight glossy sepia tone chest-up portrait by Witzel, circa 1917, signed in black fountain pen, “Best wishes/Charlie Chaplin.”  About very fine condition, with slight scuffing to the glossy finish in the background at the right; extremely faint postal cancellation impressions visible only when the photograph is angled into the light; and the ink just a shade light but generally quite readable.  Outstanding early image!
