ANTIQUE PRINT - C.1900, Cupids Orchestra, W.L. Haskell, 1/2 Yard Long, Framed
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….
AGE: The print dates to the early 1900s, the frame is more modern.
ITEM: I haven't opened up the back of the frame and I really don't want to but I may have to if someone wants this wonderful print, a photogravure, I believe, of Cupids Orchestra by W. L. Haskell. The print is a sepia toned bit of paper and the subject matter is delightful - little boy and girl angels playing musical instruments. Perfect for a nursery.
CONDITION: The print is in excellent condition with no water marks, stains, etc. The frame has a few light marks but nothing that deters from the well maintained condition of the piece. No backing paper. Cardboard is held in place with "spikes". I bought this print a long time ago and in looking under a loupe at the print, the feathery texture of the gravure is apparent - there are no "dots" which indicated the print is a reproduction. But if someone is really, really, REALLY wanting this frame, I will open the back to ascertain for sure if I am right. If I do so, please know that the picks at the back might not go in the same way and there may be a few more marks on the cardboard backing.
HALLMARKS: W.L. Haskell, Copyright by ...... that's all that shows on the print, the rest of the writing is obliterated by the frame.
SIZE: Frame measures 8" x 25" approx.
FINAL COMMENTS: Absolutely adorable.
