This framed photo of a woman leaning on a chaise or an ottoman is circa 1920s, based on her hairstyle as well as her dress (strapless gown and tulle stole) and the history of the Washington, D.C. firm Harris and Ewing, which began in 1905. In the late 1930s, the photographic firm was the largest of its kind in the U.S.
The frame has some condition issues as seen in the photos. There are small holes, dings and scratches. I believe the material is painted wood (blue on the inner edge of the frame and silver on the outer) with metal embellishments in the four corners. If you'd like more photos, please do let me know.
The bottom of the photo has the embossed Harris and Ewing name and logo, but it's partially hidden by the frame.
The back of the frame has the label of Braus Inc. Art Galleries, 2123 Broadway, New York with some illegible penciled writing. I found evidence of Braus in a 1919 publication. They were also a framing business.
The dimensions of the frame are 10 1/8" x 7 7/8".
