Uncommon vintage 3.5 x 5 matte finish black and white chest-up studio portrait, boldly signed in black fountain pen, “Very Sincerely/Mabel Paige.”  Fine condition, with a small bend to the top right corner tip, not touching the image; light silvering to portions of the darker areas of the image, invisible when the photograph is viewed head on; and most of the writing penned against the dark fabric of her dress, but generally quite readable.  The character actress appeared in dozens of films in the 1940s and early 1950s, prior to hear death in 1954.
