Hand Colored Photograph in Frame circa 1900


Here is a wonderful hand colored large photograph in a brown walnut frame. The subject is a woman taken around 1900 wearing a green suit- probably wool- and a lovely green bow-tied scarf ( also known as a pussy bow) with a large hat. It may have been a wedding suit but this was a lady with ambition it looks like to me. None of that frilly feminine nonsense for her that was also popular then. The frame is 3 1/4" thick, with one inset carved wood and the final inset has fabric around it. The frame has some nicks and scratches but can easily be restored. The photo is behind what I believe to be acrylic, not glass.

The frame is 26 5/8 x 23 5/8" and the inset is 19 3/8 x 15 5/16". Beautiful wall decor whether you need an ancestor or not. Wish I knew more about this lady.

Frequently Asked Questions

When will I receive my refund for a damaged product.

I will happily refund for anything damaged during shipping. However, I must receive pictures of the damage, the box and the wrapping. I will refund you as soon as I receive this in order to file a claim with USPS or Shipsurance.

How much is a custom mermaid?

It depends on the size and the work involved. Custom mermaids start at $50.

I saw an item like this on EBay for less. Can you match the price?


Can you hold an item until I get paid?

No. I have done this before, taken the item out of inventory and then the person never bought. This causes me to have to pay to re-list the item and miss out on other potential sales. Please do not ask me to do this.

Do you ship internationally?

Yes, I do!
