Nightingale Antiques - Rare 1915 Calendar York Harbor Fish Market York Harbor, Maine
Circa 1915 25"W 31 1/4"H 3 3/4"W frame Outstanding carved floral Sunflowers frame in gold Gesso with a gold filet. The frame is nearly pristine with only slight loss of floral at the bottom right corner. This piece was custom matted by Venetia Thompson of Principally Pictures in the early 1980''s. It has pale blue raw silk mat and all vintage gold bullion trims and French lingerie ribbon bows in each corner. The mat and calendar have been laid down on the fabric and glued using water soluable glues. It has been my favorite ephemera and advertising collection, the very center of my collection since I assembled all of the components in 1980. Wonderful 1915 calendar exquisite detail. The chromolithograph is in a German printing technique started in 1908. The calendar features a gorgeous young Art Nouveau beauty with her face pressed against brilliant pink roses. A treasure for the most advanced collector of Art Nouveau, ephemera, or advertising''s lovely ladies of a bygone era. The frame alone is one of the best I have ever seen worthy of a museum collection.
