    The community next to mine has a flea market once a year. It can be great or not, just like all markets. This year it was pretty good with two interesting finds. The first is the wood block (?) stylized house.

    I see H. L. Ahrbecker '29 for the signature. Problem is, I can't find HL at all! Does this mean 1929 or the 29th of a series? (no / with another number though)

    I think it is cool as heck, the colors subtle, zippy style. Hubby has a completely different opinion. In fact, I got a speech about his opinion. Guess it is not staying in the house if I have to hear about it ALL the time :))

      I like it!! Mystery on H.L though, can't find him either! Any info on frame/back of print? Hope it grows on the hubster, it'd be a shame to not enjoy this one!
    2. AmberRose AmberRose, 7 years ago
      Pickr, I have hanging to see if it grows on him but after the "get it out" speech, I doubt it. This pretty might be destined to find a new family at the Randolph.
      H.L. Is a mystery hopefully someone can help.
    3. AmberRose AmberRose, 7 years ago
      Sean, any ideas?
    4. AmberRose AmberRose, 7 years ago
      Hi Phil, you are very visual, block print? I'd appreciate your thoughts.

      H.L.AHRBECHER IS THE ARTIS /Dates 1929 So far this is what I have come up with from your picture:)
    6. AmberRose AmberRose, 7 years ago
      Big kiss! Let me know if you turn anything up...if you have time that is :))
    7. SEAN68 SEAN68, 7 years ago
      I will do that for you darling :) I will search:)
    8. AmberRose AmberRose, 7 years ago
      Okay for that...another big hug and a kiss! (Don't tell my W. German boyfriend)
    9. SEAN68 SEAN68, 7 years ago
      I wont tell:) big kiss and hugs to you:)

      Hey Amber You are very close to Bensenville correct ?
      Don't know if this is related but one heck of a coincidence if not.

      And on her tombstone her middle initial is L.

      Her husband died in 1927 so maybe she used her maiden name for this piece.
    12. AmberRose AmberRose, 7 years ago
      Hedge that is interesting but I can't seem to find any info on her. Same county.
    13. Thoscahaba Thoscahaba, 7 years ago
      Is there a 1/of anywhere. Is the back sealed with brown paper.?
    14. AmberRose AmberRose, 7 years ago
      No other markings. Sealed back. Confident it's not a print.
    15. Thoscahaba Thoscahaba, 7 years ago
      I like it. I was wondering if you had access to the actual paper. Sometimes there's writing on the back,describing the place etc. Maybe more info. I wouldn't tear the back paper if the artist doesn't have any history.

      H.l.ahrbecker worked for Chicago retort and brick company according to an Internet posting from 1922.
    17. AmberRose AmberRose, 7 years ago
      Well that is interesting that HL worked for a brick company. Betting a big chuck of the Chicago population worked there or at the stockyards.
      Half my house is made from these bricks. When we knocked down a wall, we sold the bricks super quick
    18. Hunter Hunter, 7 years ago
      Definitely think it's 1929 - for prints they almost always use a number for the print / total number to designate the size of the edition (as in 29/100)
    19. AmberRose AmberRose, 7 years ago
      Agreed Hunter. Thank you.
      Not gaining any traction on two fronts 1) still trying to confirm HL
      2) Hubby still hates it...heavy sigh
