This beguilingly beautiful pair of snapshot photos are a mystery: They came to me from Germany, I was told they are from France or Belgium (based on French text in accompanying photos) and they depict young girls costumed for some sort of pageant, play, or possibly a fraternal ritual. I could not resist this wonderful image of the two young women with scythes. The composition is very beautiful, almost reminiscent of Julia Margaret Cameron’s photos. The snapshots are mounted on their original piece of blue card and housed in a newer, gilded wood frame. Piece measures 9” tall.
