1927 Early pin-up style photograph of Chinese-American Hollywood star Anna May Wong. Wearing a traditional Chinese costume, this is one of the earliest we have ever seen that accentuated her sexuality which was forbidden by the racial codes of the day, but everyone ignored in her case because she was so beautiful. Her images are highly sought after today and this is one of her earliest and best we have ever seen! The condition and quality are both outstanding. The photo has some pinholes from editorial use but otherwise it grades almost perfect.
