FLORENCE BATES

Vintage 8×10 glossy black and white bust studio portrait, signed and inscribed in blue fountain pen, “To Marge/Sincerely/Florence Bates.”  Fine condition, with mild creasing in the right border; and two areas of extremely light yellowing in the facial areas, minimally detracting from overall appearance.  The indomitable character actress, frequently cast as a snooty society matron, appeared in dozens of films, including Rebecca (1940), A Letter to Three Wives and On the Town (both 1949).
