Vintage Prints

I found these lovely prints sometime ago at a flea market. They've been stored away in the basement and I just recently rediscovered them.

I've dropped this one a few times and the print is now crooked inside the frame. I'll have to figure out a way to remove the back, to straighten the picture, so that I don't damage the backing.

I like to think this fellow below is asking his love to dance. He even has a little bird on his shoulder. Next to her, someone is playing a flute or similar musical instrument.

This scene reminds me of Marie-Antoinette during her "cottage years" at Versailles.

I think these scenes are prints from larger paintings. They're quite fun and offer a glimpse into another world.

The framed art pieces measure roughly 6.25"H x 5"W. The frames are made from a molded resin and created to look like wooden frames. The back is also resin (or maybe plastic).

Thanks for dropping in today!

I'm linking up to Coloradolady for Vintage Thingie Thursday.
