Wonderful Standing TRAMP ART PICTURE FRAME Perfect Condition Boston Primitive
This cutie, though small in stature, is monumental in conception. It seems architectural with its pivoting frame suspended between fantastic zigzag obelisks. Do you have a 25th occasion coming up, such as a birthday, anniversary or other celebration saluting 25 years? The base has two tiny tiles bearing "2" and "5". Or maybe is was made in 1925? The carving on this alternates light and dark wood, tiny and huge notching. The notching is deep, clean and precise. The varnish or shellac finish has developed a very fine, even craquelure, creating a wonderful patina. Glass, picture and backing slide in from the top.
You don't get the picture - that is my wife and me many years ago visiting Prince Edward Island - but I can leave in the glass and backboard (archival matboard). I'll leave those, too. It will nicely fit a slightly trimmed 3" x 5" photograph. All the dimensions can bee seen in item specifics. Very nice piece and there is virtually no damage.
