Hello. You are viewing a FABULOUS Victorian original antique 1899 Chromolithograph by W. H. McEntee. The chromo features two BEAUTIFUL young ladies in exquisite gowns with breath-taking colors. The blonde is wearing an aqua/turquoise/teal shade V-neck gown with a lace insert, and she is holding two delicate while roses. The brunette is wearing a dusty rose shade gown. The lithograph is clearly signed and dated in the top right hand corner. T is very faint water marks on the bottom of the picture, but to all of us, they were difficult to see. T appears to be a small, pea size hole in the lower right corner and t is a circular stain about the size of a uarter to the left of the blonde. Nothing detracts from this stunning picture. ORIGINAL glass , in what appears to be the original frame , with original wood backing . The frame is a cream shade with gold gilding around the edges. The picture measures approximately 20 1/2" wide x 28 1/2" high. The actual width of the frame is approximately 1 1/2". We think it is in excellent condition considering it is 109 year old!!!! This picture has been hanging in the dressing room of a Dallas Oil Heiress, whose estate we have been liquidating for 2 years. It is of exceptional quality.Although t is a 1917 print on the internet by the same artist for $3500, We are offering this outstanding piece of Victorian history at no reserve. We do combine shipping. I have absolutely no idea how much shipping will cost but buyer pays shipping and insurance. If you do not want to pay a little more for a quality wrapped item that arrives in ONE piece, please do not bid. Because it definitely has the original glass, this piece will be professionally wrapped and packed by FedEx.
