Rex & Ray 1939

A client recently mailed this old print to have re-framed.  Along with the print (which blew me away), he added...

"Interesting side note: my grandfather (Ray in the picture) and his twin brother were born in different grandfather on Dec. 31st and his brother, Rex Jan. 1st. Pretty crazy."

Along with the print, the client asked if I could retain the backing board from the original frame that included the inscription detailing the print.  Since it was smaller than the new frame, I choose to tape it (with acid free tape) to the back of the frame to keep that artifact along with the print and continue its story. 

Project Details:  Heirloom Collection in Maple with a Black finish, 8-ply matting with a slightly weighted border.
