Masterwork Tramp Art Frame

An extraordinary tramp art frame profusely embellished with hearts, diamonds and roundels. The interior liner is scalloped with extended points and the open areas are further embellished with tiny squares. A very dynamic inspired object at the pinnacle of tramp art / folk art.

A nearly exact example by the same artist is illustrated in Tramp Art Another Notch, Folk Art from the Heart on page 251 and a frame attributed to the same hand is illustrated on the title page in Tramp Art One Notch at a Time.
