Folk art wood burned frame, signed "Gertrude Klein", 1911
Offering a folky handmade pyrographic picture frame that was possibly a camp project. Very nicely wood burned in an intricate floral design. Signed by Gertrude Klein and dated 1911 at the top and 3-7-1911 on the stanchion.
Measures: The frame is 6.5" x 9" x .25" It holds a 3.5" x 5.5" photo. The patina on the front is excellent. In original, as found condition. The piece that houses the stanchion is slightly warped but the tin snipped fasteners hold it in place.
What a great way to show off your ancestors. (Photo shown is not included.)
