Antique Edwardian Victorian Gambling POKER Cards Frames & Prints by Will FOSTER
Here are a pair of wonderful antique prints in equally or more wonderful unusual frames. They are prints for American Illustrator William Foster. Both are signed in print Will Foster. They are housed under glass in these very neat gambling motif frames. The frames are wood with applied wood decorations of cards, wine/liquor, cigarettes, champagne in cooler buckets, corkscrews, gambling chips, and keys( to jail?). The each measure 15.5 x 18.5, with their old glass and backings. One frame( the one above to the left), has more damage than the other with chipped wood off the card, one cigarette bottom is missing, one part of the key-ring is broken off, and one wine jug is broken off. Also on this frame the print has more browning of the paper. And also the left corner has a break to the wood.
The other is in better condition with no breaks, but normal wear with age and some minor separation at the miter joints. They both are still very sturdy. The other one also has women at the gambling table, wives of some of the players it looks like.
I would date the pair to the early 1900's to before 1915 time frame. These would be so great in a billiard room, or boy's poker room or card playing room. Authentic antique gambling collectible. Any questions, feel free to email me,
