DescriptionAshes of Hope (Triangle, 1917). Fine on Linen. One Sheet (27.75" X 41").
Belle Bennett stars in this silent gem as the object of desire for many rough and tough northerners, including some gamblers of disrepute. The actress would go on to star with notable actors such as Douglas Fairbanks in The Iron Mask and Norma Shearer in Their Own Desire, and work with director D.W. Griffith on The Battle of the Sexes. This style is a wondrous example of the beautiful stone litho printing technique, and has received some touchup to address edge and fold wear, fold separations, pinholes, and creases. There were also some tears into the image, chips at the edges, and a small splice in Bennett's hair. Some of these issues are still visible as well as stains and dust shadows in the borders. Fine on Linen.
Estimate: $300 - $600.
