Hand tinted photogravure print , Framed Saint Cecilia , published 1892
by French Chic
Antique hand tinted photogravure. Framed Saint Cecilia published by Berlin Photographic Company 1892 from a painting by Gustav Naujok. Original Frame and mounts. Subtle colors and tonal range. I found this item in a flea market and knew it was something good. When I took it out of its frame I found plenty of interesting information especially on the back.
On the front I found the artists name G (Gustav) Naujok and the date of the painting 1891. Also I found an embossed studio stamp 'Copyright 1892, by Photographische Gesellschaft'
On the back I found the studio details:
Photographische Gesellschaft, Berlin SW
2219 G.Naujock (a different spelling to the painting) GNIFC
Die Heilige CÃ¤cilie Saint CÃ©cile Saint Cecilia
Berlin Photographic Company
London W, 133 New Bond Street New York 14 East 23rd Street (Madison Square)
Handwritten on the back is: White mat 349 (?) Jellette Burnish
I gave it all a good dusting off and cleaned the glass and reassembled it.
It has faded a little and the original tinting has changed colour in places. The beautiful mount with its textured surface and delicate gold bead inner surround does have some foxing and a water stain bottom right corner. The frame has delicate plaster work around the edges which is missing in a few minor places.
Please take a look at all the photographs as they form an important part of the item description and condition.
The image size is 7 3/4 inches by 9 1/4 inches / 19.7 cm by 23.5 cm
Overall frame size is 14 1/4 inches by 17 1/4 / 36.2 cm by 43.8
Because the frame, glass and mount are all original to 1892 I am selling it complete. If you would prefer to have it without frame and glass the shipping will be much cheaper.
It weighs 4.3 lb / 1950 g without packaging.
Item will be shipped from France
