Killer hats!

Today’s cabinet card is two dashing ladies with some sweet huge hats and a dash of fur at the neck.SAM_0242The seated lady has a loose short jacket, a fur stole and some lovely applique on her skirt.  The standing lady also has some fur.  She has a belt with a buckle and it appears she has a bag hanging from the belt.  She has some feathers on her hat and a Gibson Girl hair style underneath that hat.  Her sleeves are a clue that has me thinking this is a 1900-05 photo.  They are a bit fuller at the wrist where the sleeves were massive at the shoulders and fitted at the wrist in the 1890s.

The photographers stamp is a bit difficult to see in a full view of the card.SAM_0243I didn’t any information on him.  That was a dead-end. But, you can see the embossing around the photo and that is indicating the card is older than 1890.  I’d say our strongest clues are the ladies clothing and I would put them at 1900-05.

    These two beauiful ladies are dressed in their finest for all time… I like the sewn in details on the seated ladies skirt.
