Large Vintage 1940s Tretchikoff Print " The Lost Orchid"

This print is a genuine used print dated and signed 1948.
It is one of those "RARE" prints that you do not see too often listed on the internet.
Complete with backing paper and sealed by the then T.Eaton Co.
who at the time had a superb framing department in Montreal P.Q.

A print like this in New condition retails for up to $600.00
It is also signed by Tretchikoff as seen in one of the pictures.
A previous owner has signed the backing paper.
The backing paper is 60 years old and is beginning to crumble.

Only one negative to report on this framed print.
It has been recovered from a very old cottage and during the time it was hanging on the walls of this cottage, the walls were painted
with white water based paint as seen in the picture. Unfortunately, for whatever reason, this print was never covered to protect it.
This paint can be removed. I prefer to leave it to a professional
art restorer at the choice of the buyer, should it sell.

This print measures 20 " high and 19" wide. Not including frame dimensions.
It weighs aprox 6 pounds (with frame).
Frame is a vintage wooden one and measures 25" x 26.75" and is in very good condition.

Postage cost will be somewhat expensive as it will have to be shipped "Expedited"
This is a form of insurance that the print will arrive safe and sound.
An educated guess as to the cost would be in the $35.00US range.
However, the bottom line is, shipping to USA is dependant on your zip code and within Canada it depends on your postal code.

Payment Options:
Paypal, E Mail transfer, money orders, personal checks.
The latter will delay shipping till funds clear.
If you have any questions, please feel free to email.
Thanks for Looking In !
