Antique Cabinet Card 1890s Victorian Couple Large Lady Corseted Dress Man Suit Matousek Chicago /19th century Sepia B&W Portrait Photography

Original cabinet card in sepia tones depicting a large, seated woman and a man standing next to her, dressed in a suit.
What is interesting is that it is rare to see a woman of her proportions in this period, and if one is researching costume history, it is interesting to note how the corseted look was realized on someone of her stature. She is obviously well off as her gown looks to be made out of quality material and given detailed attention.

On Reverse: Matousek Portraits 1575 22nd Street near Kedzie Ave. Chicago (plus some writing in pencil, with what I make out to be the Czech last name "Vorisek" — likely a Czech family in Chicago as this area was known for)

Excellent condition.
