Such A Sweet Little Homeless Boy Heart Breaker.

This fantastic illustration from 1887 was harvested from a superb collection of quality antique images of childhood from a time long gone by.

'Motherless Bairn' measures 7" x 8" overall and he's in smooth condition with sharp edges and has a lovely soft and even light tanning and the usual spots one find on paper that's 126 years old. After matting, the bent corners are gone and the image itself is lovely. This cool print just screams "Frame Me!"

Matted, framed and displayed as a gallery grouping, these wonderful Victorian children's book prints are simply spectacular. (Please note that the framed examples in the last photo are just to show how this might look when it's framed. Your antique print will come unframed.)

Surrender Dorothy offers a non-stop jaw-dropping cornucopia of frame-worthy antique and vintage prints, drawings, sketches, plans, lithos, engravings, posters, maps, charts and illustrations of all kinds to adorn every room in your happy home. Terrific finds to gussy up your workplace too.

Our entire inventory moves in and out of here very quickly and fresh selections are added each day, Please be sure to bookmark our shop and check back to visit us often so you don't miss our latest discoveries.

I'll send this to you First Class Mail by way of those nice folks at the USPS packed flat and protected in a rigid mailer.
