ELSA LANCHESTER. Vivacious 8×10 glossy black and white 1930s three-quarter length studio portrait, boldly signed and inscribed in later years in blue felt tip ink, “For/William Hosking/with best wishes/Elsa/Lanchester.” Fine condition, with mild edge creasing and a few small thumbing bends and faint dings in the background at the right, not substantially detracting from overall appearance.
