Matching Pair of Antique Tramp Art Frames

Sale price $160.00 Regular price $175.00

The backs of these terrific old tramp art frames--late 19th or early 20th century I believe--are almost as great as their fronts, and wonderfully tell the story of their construction from scraps of wood and and bits of woven trim for their hangers. Their fronts show five layers of stacked chip carved wood at the corners, topped with brass tacks at the center of each, and four layers around the sides. I can't see that their is any wood that has been lost, though there might be a few lost nails. 

Sold as a pair. Very good overall condition, with wear to the wood and small dings here and there. Structurally sound. It would be easy to have glass panes cut to lay on the back sides, where there is framing to surround the glass. Each frame measures 8 1/2" tall x 7" wide x 1" deep.
