Up for auction are two unique and very different pieces of vintage framed historical artwork acquired by my aunt in the 1970s during her travels while in the Navy. The one on the left is from Naples, Italy at the NSA Navy Exchange and it's a print of 'Tosca', a famous 3-act melodrama opera by Giacomo Puccini in 1899 that deals with murder, suicide, and torture during Napoleon's reign. The original poster was painted by Leopoldo Metlicovitz. The frame is a beautiful burl veneer, and still has the art gallery sticker on the back. The one on the right is of a print of a young boy and his white rabbit. This print is a reproduction of an oil on canvas painting by Sir Henry Raeburn aptly titled 'Boy and Rabbit' which was painted around 1814. The frame it is in is a hard, molded plastic made to resemble the richly gilded and beveled frames popular of the time. They are both in excellent condition, have sturdy metal decorative hooks, and would be a great addition to your home, office, or as gifts. Please feel free to message me if you have any questions or would like additional photos. Thanks for taking a look and !
