This early 1900's print and frame certainly set a romantic mood given the dreamy quality of the print and the seagulls that careen on the frame. The print has color yet a sepia tone and features a woman inspecting shells along the beach. The wood frame is uncommonly round and features four gesso birds on the left with a decorative edge surrounding the print. It measures just under 11.5" in diameter with the pictorial area being 6 3/8". The back is finished in foam board and a wire is attached for hanging. The print is in good condition save for a small indentation near the woman's, ah, posterior. The frame has discolorations on both the right side and bottom left but close inspection reveals these to be flaws in the wood rather than damage. The gesso birds have little cracks in them as happens with age and there is a little lifting to the wood veneer on the bottom left side. Tis a sultry seashore siren with Seagulls, how can you go wrong?
