What a pretty vintage framed print " Alice Blue Gown ". The vintage frame itself is beautiful and interesting featuring a gesso application embossed decorative motif applied to a wood backing. The print is under glass. The frame measures about 8 1/2 by 10 1/4 approx. There is one area of loss to the wood on the back bottom of frame please view photo. The bottom of the print states " Alice Blue Gown " Graphic Calendar .
Very interesting to note that there has been some speculation that the gal in this print taken from an actual painting is Teddy Roosevelt's spitfire of a daughter named Alice.
Also note the words to the original tune :
Here's a stanza from the song:
In my sweet little Alice blue gown
When I first wandered down into town
I was both proud and shy, as I felt every eye
And in every shop window I primped passing by
Then in manner of fashion, I'd frown
And the world seemed to smile all around
'Til it wilted, I wore it, I'll always adore it
My sweet little Alice blue gown.
