You are looking at a beautiful oilette print entitled “Boy & Rabbit”, which was originally painted by Sir Henry Raeburn, a very famous Scottish painter (1756-1823); this oilette print is at the top of an unused 1931 calendar.
The oilette is attached at the top only, to a textured thin cardboard backing. There is separate beige matting which is attached to the top by a brown silky cord ribbon, but is loose elsewhere. The back of the print reads: “Picture No. 36, 36. Boy and Rabbit, Toilette”. The thin cardboard backing reads: “J 36” in blue ink”. The unused calendar front reads: “Calendar for the Year”. The “January 1931” calendar page has the following at the bottom: “Louis F. Dow Co., St. Paul-Winnipeg”.
The condition is very good, with the following to note: discoloration along the left hand side; light creases at the top corner edges where the matting has been lifted up; crease to the upper left edge of the backing; there is a very light blue area on the right side on the beige matting; this may be original to the piece. The condition is so much nicer than how my description reads.
The overall dimensions are: 19 5/8” down & 12 ½” across. The oilette only is 12” down X 9 ½” across.
Whether you hang it by the brown silky cord or decide to frame it, this Oilette/calendar will look beautiful in any room.
