Physical description

Sepia cabinet print photograph, rectangular in shape, and flat mounted on a rectangular card with bevelled edges finished with gilt ink: the subjects are a woman and her two daughters. Aranka, the elder sister, stands on her mother's right, and is dressed in a pleated ankle-length single-breasted coat of a dark colour, finished with matching braid on the shoulders, and a fur collar; her hair is swept back from her face beneath a fur bonnet which is trimmed with loops of dark ribbon, and she wears dark coloured boots. Gisella, the younger sister, stands on her mother's left, and wears similar clothing to her sister, although her hair is parted in the centre. Their mother wears a coat or cape of dark fabric with a large fur collar, and her hair is upswept beneath a small hat with an upturned brim, trimmed with plumes.

Object history note

The photograph shows the donor's grandmother with her elder daughter Aranka and younger daughter Gisella (who were Edit Danos's aunt and mother respectively, the latter born ca.1895). It came to the museum in a modern frame which was not retained: on a piece of masking tape on the back was written
"This photograph is left to the Museum of Childhood. It represents my grandmother, my mother (the smaller girl) and my aunt. E Danos"
