whoa....!!!!! that top photo with the musicians is incredible! i might come to your house one night and lift it :-)

there was once on ebay a beautiful shaped photo like a hand, with a photo of a bird inside, it was stellar, and sold for way too much money...

Ah shit Steve! You know I didn't even bid on it!

What's worse...I'm not sure if it even sold or not, but for the life of me I can't find it again in eBay's completed items. I know it was under Photographic Images (Pre-1940), but it's not coming up under the normal keywords that I use. I'll let you know if I find it. Also, I'm definitely going to shoot you emails when I find something you may be interested in. Completely forgot that these early musicians would be of interest to you!

I have one of these type of cards. A bell shape with a woman inside looking at her ring finger (I think)
Is there a name for this ?

I'm not sure if there's a particular term for them per se. I just happen to come upon them every once and a while and find them fascinating, especially when the subject complements the form.
