A charming pair of vintage original prints that appear to be hand silkscreened. They are marked French Provincial on the back, though the costumes are from Zillertal, Tyrol, Austria. The pair are framed and are wearing similar hats and matching costumes in brown, aqua, black, and tomato red. The prints bear a crest from the state of Tyrol. They have lovely details on the costumes and simple faces.

I bought this (and a matching set of prints also listed in my shop) from a woman in her seventies who said she remembered them as a girl. I believe these might be from about the 1930s or earlier. The printing is very nicely done in at least 8 colors, including a metallic ink. The prints are unsigned but have some light penciled numbers (hidden by the frame) that I think might be an item number (from the dealer who framed these, obviously sometime after they printed).

The frames are lovely 1 inch wide, 1 1/4 inch deep wooden frames with black outside and gilt inside. They are fitted with hardware and ready to hang. A tag on the back gives a line number, frame number, order number, and Subject: French Provincial.

The prints are in good to very good condition; though the paper has yellowed, the colors are still bright. The man shows a little water damage to the right (next to the frame). They both have some dirt trapped beneath the glass. The frames are in good condition but could use some touch up on the black rims.

Size: 7 1/4 by 9 1/2 inches (18.3 x 24 cm)
