Vintage 1920's W.M. Thompson Print


I have such a difficult time trying to resist a good junking expedition. At times it can be a big time waste. Really....many times the effort is fruitless. Today was a great success! Yes! This photo is of a vintage W.M. Thompson print, please disregard the reflection in the lower left side. These were printed in the 1920's and 1930's. They are found in many sizes...a print such as this can be pretty large, say 24" x 30". They were also made smaller and part of the image is cut off, often for calenders, maybe 6" x 8". I found this framed print in the small size in the vintage frame at the thrift store for $5.49. A great deal indeed! My sis collects these prints and I often shop with her for them, so I know what the price would be at an antique dealer. She must have 20 to 25 of various prints, of many sizes. I know that this is something she does not have. It will make a great gift! Yay! Love it when this happens!!

The Thrill of the Hunt is like a drug to me *winks*, the Rush when you discover something awesome and at a Deal is addictive!

  5. As I said in the post, I paid $5.49 for a small print. The price will vary by size, condition, frame, and dealer. If you find a large size, good condition, original frame, and glass the price could be $75.00.
