In the mid-1920′s Ruth Etting had a thing for pearls – see , , , if you want proof! But perhaps the most iconic image of her, with pearls, is an image that seems to only exist today on sheet music – a tiny little photo, way too small for my taste.
I’ve watched the auctions, watched eBay – for years – and I’ve never seen this particular image in any format other than sheet music. It’s one of my favorite images of Ruth Etting, so I’m hoping that someday, maybe, I’ll find a vintage print. Or someone will send me a scan of one?
I went on a bit of buying spree a while back, and over the course of a year or two bought a bunch of images of Ruth Etting on eBay. I remember being excited about this print when I got it, but today as I was scanned it, it was even better than I remembered. It’s actually a vintage print by !
