Neat Framed 1918 Sheet Music Cover for "Cheer Up Tommy Atkins". The name Tommy Atkins is a generic name or term given to identify British soldiers, particularly during WW I (although the term long predates that War). This music and song was of course, themed on the War & Soldiers. The song which took the form of a letter written by a U.S. citizen to encourage the British that American's were on the way to help win the war.
This just has a really nice appeal. The frame is very old, as is the old wavy glass ( I tried to catch the waves in the pictures). Most likely this was framed not long after the music was in vogue or at least materials from the era were used in framing it for display. The glass has some scuffs but no cracks. Obviously, the matting was a later addition. The frame has some scuffs & scratches that could easily be corrected as it is a flat black paint, but I did not wish to as some people prefer the distressed look.
I believe it is only the cover for the sheet music that is framed, but I did not remove backing to find out if the actual music was attached.
Perfect decor item for any antiqued room, War Time Collector, or other.
