While the paper has slightly darkened, as is consistent with their age, the prints appear to be in excellent shape with no tears, folds or foxxing (brown spots caused by acidification.) The 6”, black round frames have some paint loss consistent with age. We can touch up the paint if you prefer, but we like the frames as they are. The frames have a gold fillet and a small brass hanging loop at the top of the frame. The convex glass is in perfect shape with no scratches or cracks.
This set was likely framed and sold between 1910-1940, as convex glass frames were popular between 1880-1940. The backs are stamped “Peter Watson Studio, Inc, Detroit, Michigan.” We cannot date the actual prints - perhaps if they were removed from the frames we could find a date - but they may be older.
These prints can add vintage equestrian style to your tack room, office, library or bar. Simply use your decorative imagination (and measure to make sure they hang evenly.)
