1934 "THE BLACK CAT"
A Universal Picture, starring Boris Karloff and Bela Lugosi.
This fabulous piece was found used as cardboard backing to an old painting; unfortunately, it was trimmed.
The COLORATION and GRAPHICS are RICH. I think a bit richer in person, than photographed.
It now measures 16" by 12."
I have taken a couple of close-up photos to show some edge wear. First, along the left side (in the ce...nter, left side of the "B") is a margin tear. Then, along the bottom edge is the wear you see below the "IV" in "UNIVERSAL," where the backing nails were. There is a topical scratch over the woman's upper arm (as seen in the first photo). It is light topically, not gouged. On Bella's head is a topical lift, but still attached (as seen in the first photo). And near the bridge of Bella's nose is a small indentation. Other than that, some light edge wear, surface wear, and light age toning.
I Think a Great Candidate for restoration. This is a Super Rare one!
It still Presents and Displays Pretty Well.
The back side has the glue swirls you see. It's not a "built up" glue. And there is a stamp from an old picture framing shop in Brooklyn, NY.
Guaranteed Original. Printed on Heavy Cardstock.
