Seller ID: xochimilco
Photographer unknown, Xochimilco, Mexico, undated (early 1900s). Gelatin silver print measuring about 12x9 inches or 31x22cm, mounted in a gorgeous carved wooden frame measuring about 25x21 inches or 64x54cm, signed in pencil on the under-matte, but I am unable to read the signature (see below). Former owner states that this print was imported to the U.S. from Mexico no later than 1945. The pictorialist style would place the print between 1905 and 1920. It is labeled "Xochimilco" in pencil on the matte. Condition of this print: Near fine with a few tiny chips and dust motes on surface.
