I have two photos from the same time period and they both show women with their arm held in a similar position.

i presume it was a common pose for the era.

sjm,
In your photos, is the hand in front or back? Any chance you could share one of them so we can see too?

lady B seems to have more of a bend at the elbow than lady A.

To me -- the bend of the elbow in the original looks quite different than that shown in sjm's photos...

I just wanted to say thanks again for all the replies! I'm sorry that I don't have any answer to the riddle yet (of whether the woman was missing an arm). At this point, I'm going to finish the restoration as if her arm was behind her back, then possibly re-do it later. I will definitely let you guys know what I find out.

I agree CJ. On the original, you can see a good part of the sleeve below the elbow, and that makes it look as though the hand would be higher than the elbow. Very uncomfortable if behind the back. Leigh Ann, you know we're all dying to hear the truth.

Thanks sjm! I have to agree with CJ though. The bends in the elbows look much different than the elbow in Leigh Anne's photo.

Such intrigue...

Hi
Just came across this thread and I'm curious as to if anyone solved the mystery of the apparently absent hand.

Looked through a few period fashion books and the "pose du jour" to show off the leg a mutton sleeves appeared to be one arm hanging relatively straight by the side and the other almost forming a right angle to the waistline with the hand hanging straight down in front of the gown. Also most of the ladies wore gloves in formal pictures. I agree that the hand if in front may have been in the folds of the skirt but in this case the skirt appeared to be tailored.

Did not come across any with the hand behind the back although it seems that way in the picture.

Anyway, I too did all sorts of things both in PS as well as placing my arm in different positions in front of the mirror and can't come to any "beyond a reasonable doubt" conclusion.

Will keep trying though because I think the answer has to be in the picture somewhere.




Paulette

I still can't come up with anything better than the blob in my previous post. I still think that's her arm, although badly damaged.
