Clark Gable 1934 Lux Toilet Soap 8.5 x 11.5 trimmed Promotional Studio Portrait
ABOUT THIS ITEM:
Vintage 1934 Lux Toilet Soap Studio Portrait - Clark Gable - "Sacred and Profane Love".
Large premium issue should measure 9" X 12-inches, but is trimmed (neatly) to 8-1/2" X 11-1/2 inches.
Printed on card stock with message on back advertising star's latest film.
Premium offering from Lux Toilet Soap was distributed in packets of 33 portraits, though only 22 stars have been identified thus far (plus some variations).
Note: The item is slightly too large for my scanner, so while the image is somewhat centered, none of the edges are visible.
GRADING - CONDITION:
Outermost border trimmed-the item should measure 9x12, but only measures 8.5 x 11.5, probably cut to fit frame, as it still displays well; touches of wear at corner tips; some light creasing near edges around top; age toning as shown.
