This is one of our two favorite authentic Big Eyes waif prints ever, circa 1960s, to 1970s.

It is is unsigned, however we've just been helped by another shopper, who shared that this is by Goddard, and we have found that she is named "Candy." (Thank you so much for your help!)

This print is enormous, measuring

18 1/2" by 22 1/2"

with an image area of

15 1/2" by 19 1/2".

This has muted, pastel colors of a taupe-ish gray background with creamy white flowers and dark leaves.

The focal figure is gorgeous, with enormous blue eyes and amazingly feathered super-long black eyelashes. She has very light brown ~ champagne blonde hair with sweeping bangs and a side part.

She has sweet, perfect lips in a very demure smile and prettily blushed cheeks.

She wears a simple ivory white bodice, abstracted with soft edges and hints of ruffles.

The frame is done in an antique white with gold flecked finish.

The print itself is a sturdy poster-board with a textured finish (mimicking brush strokes, as was so popular at the time).

The back is stamped "Bassons" "Style V 360" "Perth Amboy, N. J." and there is some tape across the top, looks like a sawtooth holder may have been taken off (we're guessing).

This has a lightweight metal circular hanger at the top on the back for hanging, but its easy to find/mount new hangers at hobby or art shops, if you wish for a more substantial hanger.

We love these not only as home or office decor, but they are fabulous in a sweet little vintage boutique or hair salon, or art studio.

Prints with large eyed children and animals have their own niche following, and as with any collection, the more unique prints are more sought after than the super-mass produced ones.

Most were manufactured to be sold in department and discount stores, and sold for very little originally.
