Vintage 10.75 x 13.75 matte finish sepia tone chest-up portrait, circa 1930, boldly signed and inscribed in black fountain pen, “For A. Baldwin -/becaues he has always been/so helpful and nice!/Most sincerely/Claudette Colbert.” Fine condition, with slightly trimmed borders; a stray ink mark in the background; very faint silvering to the darker areas of the image, comletely invisible when the photograph is viewed head on; and the entire image affixed to a same size piece of matting board. Please note that the top border is intact but trimmed, but appears more heavily trimmed in the accompanying scan, purely a scanner glitch. Scarce this early.
