Arresting vintage 11×14 matte finish black and white chest-up studio portrait, circa 1930, boldly signed and inscribed in black fountain pen, “To -/Joseh R. Brown,/Sincerely,/Tallulah Bankhead.”  About fine condition, with mild waviness to the top and bottom edges; a small tear in the top border, extending about 3/8 inch into the background, easily matted out; mild creasing to the top corner tips and another bend at the bottom right corner; two small tears in the right border; a few small surface chips near the bottom of the image.and a few additional light handling bends in the background.   Hmm, sounds a lot worse than it looks in person.  Also please note that the top right side of the image and top right border were slightly distorted during the scanning process, and the right border is exactly the same size and appearance on the actual photograph.
