Rare Full Length Standing Half Plate w/ Virtually No Flaws; a Cocktail Party Pose!The Image Has Excellent Reflective Depth and a Subtle Range of Tones andHas Been Placed in an Equally Impressive, and Scarce Full Black Leather Book Style Case w/ Ruby Red Velvet Pad.

Included is a Photocopy of a Handwritten Note of Provenance Which Reads; "Kramer and Rahm, Pioneer Bankers of Pittsburgh. This picture is Allen Kramer of said Bank. Picture as far as I know is over 150 years. I have had it 60 years. Maude Rahm." There's a Photocopy of a Full Length Advertisement for Kramer & Rahm.

The Most Interesting However, is a Listing for Daguerreian Artist William McDonald, Located at the Corner of Wood and Third, the Exact Location of Kramer & Rahm's Business. I Believe it's Quite Plausible to Conclude McDonald was Indeed the Maker of This Fine Full Length Portrait. A Wonderful Piece of Pittsburgh Banking Business History!
