This is a vintage print of Cupid with a bow by the American artist, Bessie Pease Gutmann (1876-1960). It is titled "Excuse my Back." The artist was well known for her darling portraits of children. Her signature is on the print as well as "© Gutmann & Gutmann." You have to tilt the picture to see the title, as it is at the bottom center.
It is housed in an ornate metal table top frame. It has decorative attachments at each corner. The frame measures approximately 7 3/8" tall and 5 1/2" wide. It has glass on the front, an old black backing, and a metal stand. The picture or print would slide in from the top. The measurements for a print or photo are 6" tall and 4 1/4" wide.
The frame has a patent number on the lower back, but it is impressed into the metal and difficult to read.
I don't see any damage on the cute print. The frame shows some discoloration, but I haven't done anything to try to polish or clean it. It seems charming, just as it is.
Please email me if you would like to see any additional photos.
