Gorgeous Arched Barbola Frames with Rose Prints!

OMG! These are quite a fabulous set of rose prints! They are both in a grand, arched, barbola style, with ornate embellishments. And, they have that antique convex glass that makes the art just pop!

The frames are antique and the reprints come from paintings in our personal collection. You can find both of them on our antique website at Ruby Lane. Here's a link below. We will also be posting more great antique items on that site in April, just ready for Mother's Day! Think ahead, our antique etiquette books (which are quite a hoot!) go real fast, and they make great gifts for Mom! We also have layaway so you can buy now and hold items for that special day!www.rubylane.com/shop/victorianroseprints.

Sweet Baby Chicks for Easter!

Oh goodness! What could be sweeter than dressed chicks doing people things?! This set of four circus chicks has endearing scenes that are sure to please, and oh so cute to boot! We not only have this set, but two other sets of 4 scenes, one that has baby chicks in an office setting, and another of baby chicks cooking and baking! Scroll down to see a sampling.

Another set of six photograph chicks (5 shown below), are from the early 1900's and have baby chicks posed in very sweet Easter scenes. All of them are just darling! You can find all our chicks on our Etsy site by clicking this link: www.etsy.com/shop/victorianroseprints

Spring is on It's Way!

Ah, the arrival of Spring! It's not long off, and to celebrate and renew your vigor, try decorating with some of our inexpensive reproduction prints. They are all made from the 1890 oldie's, and are quite affordable. You can find them on our Etsy site by clicking this link: http://www.etsy.com/shop/victorianroseprints Lilacs are always a favorite, and this basket of overturned lilacs by Paul de Longpre is gorgeous! Another vertical study by Catherine Klein is below.Violets were always a Victorian favorite, and of course, they symbolized the virtue of "Faithfulness". Their tender sentiment makes them all the more endearing. The potted violets are by Paul de Longpre, and the vase of violets with the ribbon is by Mary Hart, sometimes known as "the violet artist". She painted several yard long violet prints, and most of her studies are indeed violets. Alice Chittenden also favored violets, and here is one of her paintings in a slightly more wispy Impressionist style.
