1)The original antique print of a diver bird was matted with 2 acid free mats and framed professionally. Frame and one mat are hand-painted and signed by artist. 9,5"X8,5"
2) The larger one was professionally framed as well in a unique detailed hand painted custom frame, hand painted and signed by the artist, with 2 acid free mats, 1 of them hand painted with details, all created to enhance the print and give it a Victorian feel. This second print is of Gould hummers, and added as a gift. We closed our store and are trying to make room by selling the rest of our inventory to clear the space.
We sold such older and hard to find prints between $100.00 and $300.00, framed this way depending on size, from our art store, now the first print is 1/2 priced + the gift of hummers is added since we just closed the building and are liquidating what is left.
This is a real bargain, and ready to go!
It makes a great gift for collectors of rare prints.
Frames are unique and created especially for the art within. Frames come with Artist Bio.
The rest of the photos show additional framed prints available that came from our store
