Original cabinet card; 6.5" x 4.25". Unusual in that her sign, which is sitting on the chair, wasn't on a staff but was meant to be hand-held - note the handle at its base. Her dress appears to be covered with candies.. chocolate and others... the ones on her crown seem to be heart shaped. There may also be nuts, but those could be candy as well. On the bottom of her dress are moon, stars, and horseshoe charms, as well as a photo of an older man. I can't make out the words surrounding his picture, but one might be "Country". Studio imprint on the back is Bradley of Bement, Illinois. The image is in excellent antique condition overall, with some light corner bumps and tiny edge scuffs, as shown. There is very light crinkling (not creasing) on the outer layer of paper on the BACK.. this is probably original, in my view is insignificant, but I wanted to mention it. It does not affect the front in any way. Choice of boxed Priority or boxed Express Mail.
