Framed Photograph “Camp Stove” by Hippie Jack Stoddart!

We’ve been on a Hippie Jack kick of late, here is another vintage photograph by the Tennessee folk icon. This one is titled “Camp Stove” and is from the early 80s. We kept the original framed and re-sized it to be proportionate around the image. We did replace the original mat with a roughly textured linen. This piece measures about 24″ by 32″. Jammin’!

Ace was a good ol’ dog, he spent his thirteen years living a large and happy life with a good family. A local brewery branded their barrel aged stout as “Ace of Hearts” in honor of this great dog that spent many afternoons lounging on the cold floors of the brewery. We matted the photos in a double black textured silk and used a 1 3/4″ wide Italian contoured frame. Cheers to Ace! Good boy.

Framed Arabic Prayer on Papyrus!

Framed Arabic Prayer on Papyrus!

Papyrus presents unique challenges when framed properly. We like to mount the papyrus on top of the acid free mat and then raise the glass off the papyrus with hidden spacers. The frame on this one is an Italian hand-finished olive wood, it gives a great texture, mimicking the fibrous qualities of the papyrus.
