Vintage Anna Hempstead Branch Framed Print "Mother" Motto - image 1 of 5

A lovely framed under glass motto entitled "Mother" by Anna Hempstead Branch (1875-1937) from New London, Connecticut. Thomas Stead called her "the Browning of American poetry". The circa 1920's motto reads, "Mother - God wove a web of loveliness, Of clouds and stars and birds, But made not anything at all So beautiful as Mother's words. They are as fair as bloom or air, They shine like every star, And I am rich who learned from her How beautiful they are". The print shows an image of blue birds, colorful flowers and fluffy clouds.

The print and frame measures 9" in length and 7" in width. Marked "Anna Hempstead Branch" and Reliance P.F.Co, N.Y. & Chicago. In 1903 Jim, Aaron and Mickey Scheyer began manufacturing picture frames in Manhattan under the name of The Reliance Picture Frame Company, named after the renowned yacht, “Reliance”, winner of the America’s Cup and the pride of the United States. Wonderful vintage condition, sharp colors and lovely frame.
