Here is a lovely colored print of a vintage vamp – think silent film stars doing Arabian Nights or playing Cleopatra from ‘way back!  It  may have been an advertising card of some sort,  but the model is uncommonly beautiful and her jewellery is amazing.  The piece on her head is my favorite, but the belt, pearls, anklets and upper arm elements are lust-worthy too.  A tighthtly draped saree highlights the woman’s smooth hip; her tiny green “blouse” has what could be gold discs over the bust.  What actress or model today could make such a luscious outfit look this inviting without being either too coy or blatant?
