Peace Dove Bird Vintage 20th c. Original Print Modern Brown Bird Art by Bobby framed
BIRD Dove of Peace Vintage 20th c. Original Print
-- modern brown bird art -- by Bobby -- framed
We purchased this charming original work of art in a shop in Williamsburg. This wonderful print had come from a private collection in the area (but the seller had no other information for us). After purchasing it, we did carefully take apart the frame to see if we could find any more information in addition to what is printed /stenciled on the backing --- Peace Print by Bobby (and signed in ink by hand – Bob, Harriet & Bobby). Perhaps the original print was a Christmas card / art / gift and framed by the recipient (or maybe it was framed before being presented as a gift).
We love finding great birds (our name is Adams-Byrd!!), and this one is especially nice. This avian peace symbol, rather than being the more often seen white dove, is probably the darker variety (the brown/gray European turtle dove or the American mourning dove).
The brown bird (with some white details) rests on a dark surface with a yellow / ochre background. It was printed on a heavy textured ivory paper. It was double matted (dark brown and tan) and put in a simple black frame (with a gold inner edge).
Our best guess for the date of this original work of art would be the 1960s or 1970s.
If you collect original works of art featuring birds, this brown bird would be a great addition to your collection. Hang it on the wall (it does have a wire on the back) or display it on a tabletop easel / stand.
The frame is 10 7/8" x 8 3/4". The mat window is 6 1/4" x 4 3/8". The size of the original print (within the plate “marks”) is about 5 3/4" x 4".
