    I found this large print in a huge frame yesterday at a second-hand shop in Berkeley, CA. By the looks of the backing paper, it appears to have been framed in the 1940s or maybe 1950s, but i really don't know. The frame is 22 inches by 16 inches and the print is 8.5 inches by a little under 6 inches. it's 'tipped-in' and i believe it's a chromolithograph. i'd love to get some more info about it. thank you!

      What does its tipped-in mean?
    2. ho2cultcha ho2cultcha, 11 months ago
      it was printed separately from the background and glued at the top - hanging loosely on the matte board/background. something like that...

      It’s a pretty print. Do you think it had a glass front and was broken?
    4. ho2cultcha ho2cultcha, 11 months ago
      thanks Mrstyndall. it still has a glass front. ??

      The dress looks like those in the 1810s... so it should be from that time.

      thank you austro. that's about what i thought.

      ho2cultcha, austrohungaro,

      That was also my sense of the dress style, but the timeline of lithography/color lithography/chromolithography invention seems a bit off:

      I suppose it could be a color lithograph, but if it's a chromolithograph, then it would have been a 'nostalgic' image.

      Love those weird long fingerless gloves. I wonder if those were an adaptation of the generally sleeveless or short-sleeved Empire style for women living in cooler climates.

      i was thinking chromo because of the high quality of the color, but i really don't know. good insights keramikos!
