The delicate and tender embossed artwork on this advertising calendar art print pictures a mother and child in a loving embrace. The two are framed by a deep blue arching trellis with pink petunias climbing the rails. The Art Nouveau style background features a die cut railing at the top. An open space at the bottom was used to hold the advertising calendar for the wall hanging.
This salesman's sample calendar artwork was presented to businesses for a promotional calendar to advertise their business to loyal customers. Various styles and sizes from which to choose would be presented to business owners. This vintage ephemera piece would have been a popular advertising piece for any type of business.
The wallhanging art has a hole at the top for a ribbon or string. The mother and daughter art measures approximately 11 inches tall and is 5 1/4 inches at the widest point. This vintage print is in good condition. There is some considerable foxing and soiling visible on the open bottom section due to storage for many years. The back has the order number, "NO. 07993 CLASS-B" and "Germany" printed in purple ink. The salesman has written "MM.AP-AT.-KP." and 7-4 1/2-4-3 1/2" in pencil. These were probably optional sizes and mounting styles this piece came in.
A truly lovely art print that would be a wonderful Mother's Day gift or framed for any home decor.
