1897 Gesso Framed Chromo Print - Jardinière of Pansies
You are looking at a gorgeous & heavy antique chromo print, which features a bowl of pansies; it is copyrighted/dated 1897 on the lower right side with the initials G N Y. It is in an ornate and heavy gesso frame with glass.
As you can see, the colors are gorgeous; the pansies are done in shades of purple and yellow.
The ornate antique gold gesso frame has beautiful detail, but as you can see it has a shabby chic look to it, with gesso missing mainly along the left side/bottom edge. There are other slight imperfections here and there, but nothing major. Pic #8 shows a small piece of wood missing from the frame, which is on the back top portion, and can't be seen from the front.
The chromo print is in very good condition, with the following to note: the lower left side has a light stain, possibly a water mark. The border at the bottom is a bit dirty/dusty & there are a couple very minor scuff marks. The back features the original wire hanger and nails, although a newer cardboard backing was added. There are quite a few missing nails, so tape was added to keep the print in place, although it's coming loose in places.
The entire framed piece measures 27" across & 23" from top to bottom; the litho print only is approx. 20" across & 16 ½" from top to bottom.
This antique framed chromo print is gorgeous & will enhance any room, from Shabby Chic to Paris Apt., it will look amazing.
