Offering a home made, framed, under glass print from World War One (1914 - 1919). This is an original item that has not been tampered with.
This framed piece measures 9" X 10 1/2". Inside the frame there is a print measuring 6 1/2" X 8 1/2" with a picture of a soldier returning home to his mother and father. The soldier is entering the parlor and his dog is leaping up to greet him. He is still in his WWI uniform. The clothing and the parlor itself are quite interesting, totally of the time, from the coal scuttle by the fireplace, to the flag draped military picture over the mantel.
This print may have been a give away or supplement to some periodical of the time. Someone mounted the picture on a bed of red, white and blue paper ribbons, (now old and faded), peeking out to form a border under the glass.
The picture is very slightly askew which means it is not glued into place and can be re-centered by opening the back.
The frame is a simple wood affair and the backing is an old paper board with a white string stapled on for hanging.
