EARLY 1900's (I think maybe 1910's) MOTHER MOTTO PICTURE IN OAK FRAME, sepia tone picture of "Whistler's Mother", metallic gold trim on print, gold wash on frame, 7" x 11", gold wash on frame may not be original but it has been there a very long time, "published by Morris and Benden N.Y.", print is in near mint condition, frame is in excellent to fine condition with slight wear on paint, slight wear on corners, and a crack in the wood on the upper left that detracts some but is not a glaring fault, overall the picture looks great    #MO28250    $28.00


.

IN LIFE'S GARDEN, MOTTO PICTURE, "copyright 1918 R. R. Volland & Co. Chicago" on the bottom left, in wooden frame that I think was originally brown and gold, poor to fair condition with very little paint left on the frame and a tape mark on the print as shown in the photo    #MO30847    $6.00...

MOTHER, 1900- 1910's, MOTTO IN A METAL OVAL FRAME, I think this was a postcard, frame was originally black and gold, 5" x 6 1/2", fair to poor condition with much of the paint worn off the frame and some rust on it, also the hanger is gone from the back board so it will take some jerryrigging to get it to hang (usually I hang wired from the metal tabs of the frame)    #MO30848    $10.00...
