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 Austrian. The pair are framed. The woman is wearing the traditional costume of Ausee in Styria, Austria, with the crest of Styria. The man is a little dressier, with a feather on his hat and meerschaum pipe; his costume and crest are from Upper Austria. The prints 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 eight or more colors, including a metallic ink. The prints are unsigned but the man has light penciled numbers (erased and hidden by the frame) that seems to be an an item number (from the dealer who framed these, obviously sometime after they were 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. Note that I did take the man out of his frame to see if there were any clues to the prints origins (it confirmed these were hand done), but all has been replaced as it was.

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). The woman has a little dirt trapped beneath the glass. The frames are in very 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)
