Antique Tramp Art Wood Picture Frame With Glass Cover
Description: This is a true antique tramp art wood picture fame with a glass cover. The frame has the typical tramp art look with the multi level of toothed wood to build depth into the sides. The frame has an old German print with a girl running into place with people and titled "Die Tobelhocker". The frame has been built on the back using flat wood slats to allow for inserting the glass and the print with cardboard used as backing. We believe those are more recent additions to the frame. Never the less they do not compromise the quality or beauty of the piece. A nice piece of Tramp Art which once properly cleaned would display very well in your collection. Please carefully review photos presented as they are part and parcel of our description.

The frame has been built on the back using flat wood slats to allow for inserting the glass and the print with cardboard used as backing. We believe those are more recent additions to the frame as is the print within the frame. There are a few minor chips at the edges of some of the teeth within the layer but these are minor and few and do not distract from the beauty of the piece. Please see photos to appreciate its beauty and for additional condition information.
