Munier Postcard of Child with Broken Vase in Folk Art Style Wood Frame
This is a cute wood folk art frame. Inside is what appears to be a postcard by the French artist Emile Munier (1840-1895). It is called "The Broken Vase" and shows a young child who has broken a vase while playing. The child looks very distressed about the mishap.
The wide wood frame appears hand made, judging from the back with its metal strips. At the bottom of the frame is "Century" impressed in the wood. The postcard is on top of a type of tan fabric. In the shop where it was purchased, it was hanging on a nail from the indentation at the top of the frame. You could add a hook or wire, if desired. It has old glass, and a wood backing.
Size: The frame itself measures approximately 9" tall and 7" wide. The opening in the back is approximaely 7" by 5 5/8". The image of the child measures 5 1/2" by 3 1/2" - normal postcard size.
Condition: Some wear to the frame's finish, with some whitish marks but no damage noted. A little wrinkle on the fabric. I have not taken this apart as I wasn't sure how it is put together.
