No location info could be found on this antique portrait, just the name “Philipo Faso 1925”. An online search turned up no one with this name.
There is a possibly that the spelling is unusual, and that it could also be Filipo Faso, Philippo Fazo, etc…. Hopefully I’ll get some time to do more research later and see if I can find some hints to who this young man was.
Regardless, I couldn’t afford to rescue him from the antique store I saw him in. He’s hanging upstairs in the Midwest Custom Furniture store of English, Indiana if anyone goes looking for him.
