Tramp Art Heart Shaped Cigarette Pack Frame with Photo of Young Sailor

Regular price $125.00

As good an example of a heart shaped standing frame made out of carefully folded bits of cigarette packs as I've seen--in this case Camels--and made more special, as found, housing this wonderful photo of a very young and very anxious looking young sailor. Typically, cigarette pack craft--frames and crosses and the like--are described as prison art, and perhaps indeed this frame was made by an inmate, framing a photo of a son headed off to join the Navy in WW2. (The design of soft packs of Camel's hasn't changed since then.)  A great example, and wonderful portrait, in excellent condition.
