convex silhouette
« on: February 22, 2006, 05:10:45 PM »
I found a convex glass silhouette and I'm wondering if anybody could help identify it.

It's a girl with hoop skirt with bows. It is signed C A L below the picture. No frame or backing- just the glass.

I tried searching for info but no luck yet. Any help appreciated!


Diameter is 4". Sorry so huge! I'm used to photobucket..

Mod: The picture links no longer work. If you own the piece in question and you have images, please contact any of the moderators as we'd like to restore the pictures to the thread.

Looks like part of a magic lantern moving slide.
