CHARLIE CHAPLIN (3)

Emblematic 7.3 x 8.8 matte finish black and white full-length portrait by Witzel as the Little Tramp, boldly signed and inscribed in india ink, “To Francis [indecipherable]/Sincerely yours/Chas. Chaplin/Sept. 20.th 1915.”  Very good condition, with slightly unevenly trimmed edges and a series of horizontal bends running much of the width of the image.  Most of these bends are quite light and, to all intents and purposes, invisible when the image is viewed head on and only noticeable when the photograph is angled into the light.  However, two bends near the bottom of the image are more visible (and visible in the accompanying scan), slightly detracting from overall appearance.  Scarce, and ideal for display.
