A little girl looks into a hand mirror to check if her hat is on straight in this vintage kids image. The large bow and bustle on her dress and dainty lace collar are lovely but it is the little girl’s hat that steals the show. Such a pretty hat it is with several feathers and a large velvet bow. Atop her curly hair, the hat adds a touch of sophistication to her overall appearance. I hope someone will find a great way to reuse this vintage drawing.
1890 Baby’s Annual Pictures and Stories for Little People supplied almost 100 wonderful images for Reusable Art. D. Lothrop Company filed the copyright in 1889 but since they did not identify an illustrator or author, the copyright held for 120 years. How lucky are we, that these vintage images are now in the public domain?
This image is copyright free and in the public domain anywhere that extends copyrights 70 years after death or at least 120 years after publication when the original illustrator is unknown.
