ANTIQUE LG BENJAMIN GIFFORD HOME GUARD ON THE COLUMBIA PHOTO PIE CRUST FRAME :
This circa 1890s rarity is a photo by Benjamin Gifford, Oregon photographer. The photo is hand tinted and, as you can see, there is damage to the tinting. I have spoken with a photographer who thinks this can be repaired, but I do not know this for certain. Also you will note that the heavy "brads" originally used have slightly rippled the thick card surface (see photo). So, no, the photo is not perfect and you are purchasing knowing this. The original pie crust frame is in great condition and is appropriate in an American Arts and Crafts or Art Nouveau setting. I understand this particular Gifford image called, variously, "Home Guard on the Columbia" or "Sunset on the Columbia River," was used in major railroad stations in the northwest. The piece measures 53.5" x is necessary. Any overage will be refunded. QUESTIONS? ALWAYS EMAIL BEFORE offerDING. SEE MY sales FOR JEWELRY, ANTIQUES AND INTERESTING COLLECTIBLES.
