Do you or someone you know own a complete with frame Bear Dog Print? I recently came across an original print that has been poorly trimmed and mounted in an incorrect frame. This print is in desperate need of some kind of restoration. I'm not trying to fool anyone, but wish to duplicate as close as possible the correct frame with corner and shotshell "treatments" for my own personal enjoyment. I have the skills and tools to duplicate the frame itself but have very little info to draw from. I need dimensions and good color photos of the frame and adornments from an original. If you are familiar, you know these are few and far between. I would be forever grateful for any and all assistance with this project.

 

Thanks for your time,

 

Chris

Chris,

I've had the same plan for a number of years. I have an original print without the advertising on the frame. Mine might be the original frame that someone stripped and refinished. I'm not sure, but the dimensions appear correct. It looks like oak.

A friend of mine, that passed away a few years ago, had an original in very good shape with advertising intact. It now belongs to his son, and I believe he would let me photograph it and take measurements. I, too, would like to duplicate the advertising on my frame for display purposes.

If I can get the photos and measurements, I will be happy to share them with you.

That would be fantastic. I saw an original at an auction in Saline Michigan a few years ago but did not think to take measurements or photo's as the bidding blew past my wallet. Thanks for your time. I look forward to any info you can share with me.

Chris,

Do you have a picture of what you're looking for ?

I do a lot of travel and see a lot of things.

I have this print framed, no advertising. It belonged to my grandparents who were born in 1897&1900. Beautiful black leather framed. Need to sell if you're still interested email me
