Signed Earle Bergey (darker green on leaf, left).
It is a razor’s edge, to depict a beautiful girl; one slip will fail, even for Bergey.
(Advertisers know that even success can be temporary; yesterday’s beauty can be risible today, and icons need overhauling now and then – viz. the mermaid of ‘Chicken of the Sea.’)
1948, Barbara Stanwyck’s bumper bangs with Judy Garland’s face. Both famous but not that pretty.
