    Description

    ARIZONA APACHE NATIVE AMERICAN INDIAN - BOUDOIR CARD - A.F. RANDALL - ca.1885. A "Mojave Apache" with colorized flowers adorning his head is an interesting image, considering most of the images that this photographer published of males from this tribe were scouts, warriors or infamous personalities. The boudoir card size is 5.25"x 8.5" and is gold-rimmed. The back is purple ink hand-stamped A. Frank Randall, who produced these famous sets of cards at his studio in Wilcox, Arizona Territory, mostly of Southwestern Indians. The card and image are in good condition, with the image exhibiting a nice tonality and contrast. The flowers are well colored, which was a process mostly used later than this dates to, and one that would be considered unusual for this time, subject matter, and photographer.
