JLR believes this is a vintage press print, ferrotyped. The Revealing Eye (New York 1967) reports that Muray came to New York in 1913, opened a portrait studio in Greenwich Village in 1920 and that his photographs soon were appearing in the gravure section of the New York Tribune; during the 1920s his celebrity protraits appeared in Harper's Bazaar and Vanity Fair. Negative apparently printed in reverse, based on reverse orientation of Kodak-Eastman name in negative edge, UL; negative number written on negative (also in reverse) in UR edge is 4409. This image is a duplicate of a print in the International Museum of Photography and hence was de-accessioned; see enclosed copy of record provided by Jim Conlin.
