PAIR OF ANTIQUE PRINTS ON BOARD BACKS, LACQUERED FRONTS, ‘UNION’ STAMP
- Beautiful pair of antique prints with lacquered fronts – Taken from antique oak wood frames.
- At first I believed these were original paintings, but on further inspection I believe they are prints that have been finished with a top coat of lacquer.
- Both prints showing classic scenes of ladies receiving kisses from suitors on horseback.
- Prints with hardboard backs and original brown paper backs. Hand written titles on the reverse side of backs – Print shown left in photos titled ‘Returning from the (obscured)’, and print shown right in photos titled ‘A stolen Meeting’.
- No mounts or frames included in this sale.
- Can just make out an embossed stamp in the lower right corner of the print shown right in photos. It’s circular with text through the middle reading ‘UNION’, although the rest is obscured – please see photos.
- Both pieces measuring approximately 26.5cm tall by 21cm wide (outer edge dimensions).
- Both prints in moderate condition – The lacquer top coats have discoloured and cracked over original pictures, and there is flaking around outer edges of pieces (particularly on print shown right in photos). Some lifting of prints from backboards in places – PLEASE SEE PHOTOS FOR CONDITION.
- A beautiful pair of antique lacquered prints, which would look stunning in any home or on display.
