To my surprise and excitement I won #2 S/N Venetian Blinds with Karl Bornstein provenance from the recent Clark auction. So much attention was spent on the drawings, I could not believe I won with a $750.00 bid. With premiums and tax she was just under 1K, a steal as we know. I am also local so no shipping was necessary, just a friend with bigger car(=.
She is in the original Mirage archival frame which I was unaware of at the time of my other post. Nagelite however pointed out in a post just prior to auction this probably adds value. (Thanks Nagelite for the encouragement on the forum and at the auction!)
Instead of re-framing her, I will just repair the bottom. You can see from my photo, my red bedroom wall makes her lips pop! I needed a large piece here to help with my 36' ceiling and she matched my decor perfectly so it was meant to be.
#2/50 is in Los Angeles where she has lived all her life like me, a California girl. Swimmersgirl
