Vintage Thingies Thursday – Autumn Picture


This post is part of Vintage Thingies Thursday, sponsored by Lisa, the Apron Queen.

I was thinking for this week’s vintage item I should do something with an autumn theme. In the living room one of the pictures over the sofa is a framed piece I got at a junk store in town. I often went there looking for frames to use on other pictures, but sometimes got a piece that I liked and decided to hang it on the wall. I paid about $12-15. for this.

This piece is a print under glass [please excuse the flash on the glass in these photos]. I recently had to take it out of the frame because the print had slidden down; however, I did not see any artist name or other marking.

The mat is ruled two fine lines in gold surrounding two stronger lines in brown.

The frame is gilt and has a very nice molding.

The subject is a scene along a canal with a handsome stone bridge. The tiled-roofed buildings touch the water. It seems to be set in Europe, perhaps the Netherlands. The color of the trees give the impression of autumn.


Well, thanks so much for viewing my vintage item for today. Do return for another visit soon. For more vintage items, please see Lisa at An Apron a Day.

That canal does look very Amsterdam-ish! I don't notice the colors of the leaves changing as vibrantly here in The Netherlands as I did when I lived in Utah though. The trees all seem to go green to no leaves and I miss the bright colors!
