If you peeked into almost any American residence from the Victorian era through the mid-20th century, you’d find doilies adorning sofas, chairs, and mantels, according to Helaine Fendelman in Country Living magazine.
And if you peeked into any industrial modern home today, you'd be likely to see bold and large graphic art like this covering the walls.
Well, back in the day those lacy linens were often created at home (women’s magazines published patterns) and shaped on stretchers such as this that were produced commercially at least as far back as the 1920s. Chicago’s Pinabord manufactured this particular version around 1950.
Now, this fun graphic piece could have a different function: use it as a bulletin board or pin up board to display fun photographs! Or just use it as super fun, eye-catching artwork. Even as a target for a game of darts, if you will! The options are endless.
The body is made of heavy layered paperboard, and the red frame is wood. It comes in its original box (although it's only plain cardboard).
Very good vintage condition. It has been used but the pinhole marks are contained and not overwhelming. Please see photos carefully.
Measures 28" wide x 24.5" tall.
