Hi Tim, The place looks fantastic. Our house is done in Mid Century as well. One piece at at time. It never stops. Just when you think you have it just the way you want it, You find something else. We rotate some things because we like them so much when we found something else we couldn't part with it. Scott

tikitim, can you post a a closer detail of the couple holding hands. I see now that my piece should have been mounted on a board. Looks like orange burlap maybe? then the detail I would like to see is the wood bottom piece. maybe someday I can get my couple remounted as they belong.
Thanks for posting, I enjoyed looking!

Not neccessarily, I believe. Maybe keigs can throw some light on this question. Though certainly sometimes, over the years, the frames of Witco wall art broke and were discarded, from what I have seen some of the carvings were sold in two versions, with and without framing.

ahhh ha. I wonder if the framed couple are the same size as my unframed version. There are no marks of any kind on the back of my piece that might have given a hint as to if they were once framed.

If your piece has no holes in the back I bet it was never framed. Both my Outrigger and the World Map, the pieces are held on by long staples or sometimes called horseshoe nails. Scott

exotica, like Bigbro says you could buy them both ways with or without frame and background. On a lot of items you could choose what color background you wanted also.
