This framed print is from a local doctor's estate and is in EXCELLENT condition. Picture still has original price tag on back of $50.00. It is approx. 18 years old, as it was purchased in 1988. Truly a gorgeous work of art. The entire wood frame measures 15 1/2" wide x 12 1/2" tall. The frame is 1" thick on sides and 1 1/4" wide on the front, and is beveled (please see photos). I took photos near a window - so please excuse any reflections.
The watercolor print measures 8 1/2" wide x 7 1/4" tall. It is outlined by a 1/8" border of gold metal which is beveled. It is double matted with two beveled matts, the inner matt is a sage green, and the outer mat is pink with 2 narrow gold border stripes near the inner edge. The green mat measures 9 3/4" wide, and the pink matt is 13 1/2" wide. Total measurement inside the frame is 13 1/2" wide by 9 1/2" tall. The back of the picture is completely covered with the original brown paper from Vanguard. You can feel the secure fasteners under the paper. It has a very sturdy locking metal and wire hanger. The frame is wood, but has been totally gilded in gold with an antiqued finish. Just lovely.
