While it does need to be clean, the paintings enamel surface has a very nice 61-year old patina that gives it an extra quality. In addition, the enamel painting still retains its original wooden frame and paper backing and as such it has never been removed from its frame. As you can see from the photographs shown above, the original paper backing has several tears and stains, and there is evidence that it once had an additional paper label in the upper right corner which is now missing.LASTLY, SHOULD THE WORD "EAMES" BE USED IN THE SEARCH TITLE, IT IS THERE FOR THE PURPOSE OF REFERENCING THE MID-CENTURY TIME PERIOD OF THE 1940S THROUGH THE 1970S. 14 THIS ITEM IS BEING OFFERED BY DESIGN REFERENCES -- ESTABLISHED BY A FORMER ART MUSEUM CURATOR TURNED BOOKSELLER SPECIALIZING in OUT-OF-PRINT and PERIOD MATERIALS on the PROGRESSIVE IDEAS of MODERNISM and POST-MODERNISM in DECORATIVE ARTS and ARCHITECTURE, INDUSTRIAL and STUDIO ARTS of the 19TH & 20TH CENTURIES.
