Trio of Framed M.B.Parkinson Prints - Cupid's Awake, Cupid's Asleep and Madonna & Child

The photographer, M.B.Parkinson, worked in New York City area during the latter part of the 1800's and early 1900's. His young model, Josephine Anderson, was the daughter of a friend, a single mother who worked and sometimes left her child in Parkinson;s care. Josephine died in the 1970's.

The copyright was owned by Taber-Prang Co. of Springfield Mass., but it was the Ohio Art Co. that made the prints popular. Ohio Art of Bryan, Ohio, was founded in 1908. It began as a manufacturer of metal picture frames. To increase sales, the company sold the frames with pictures; among them Parkinson prints.

This super original triple oval metal frame with glass, holds three of the famous prints; "Cupid's Awake", "Madonna & Child" and "Cupid's asleep". The individual frames measure 3" in length and 2 1/8" across. The two Angel prints are stamped "Copyright 1897 by M.B.Parkinson"; the Madonna & Child print is marked, but only the year 1911 is visible. The condition is near mint, sharp and clear. This triple set and frame size is very scarce.
