A restoration of Tonnesen’s Beauty’s Charms
is now available through the publisher’s website
. Beauty's Charms
was found on an advertising calendar dated 1919 for The Best Mfg. Co., New Haven, Conn.

The dress and the model are seen in other works contained in archives of Tonnesen's work, and this image is shown hanging in Tonnesen's Chicago studio in a photo dated 1920.
The original calendar image from which this print was produced appears on page 116 of The Secret Source: Beatrice Tonnesen and the Calendar Art of the Golden Age of Illustration.
The restoration is 13?x19?, limited edition, numbered, and dated, with a description at the bottom. It is printed on Epson UltraSmooth Fine Art Paper with Epson UltraChrome K3 inks to last more than a century.
