Vintage Robert Kline Mermaid Dolphin Print "UNA" Sea Maiden #21 Framed Matted Coastal Beach Decor
This is a wonderful piece of signed vintage artwork for your Coastal, Beach or Nautical home. The print is called "Una" Sea Maiden #21 by Robert Klein with a date of 1833. It is framed and matted. The print was not made in 1833 but this renown watercolor artist of mermaids and mermen captured an old sea theme and it is wonderfully done. The colors are so saturated you will have difficulty distinguishing this print from an actual water color painting....even with a loupe it is a very good quality print.
Robert Kline grew up in the Northeast part of the country but ended up in St. Augustine Florida so we come across his prints from time to time. This one however, is not one we see often; it might have been an earlier production print. There are over 100 different prints in his collection. This print is from a local estate and it has been framed and matted.
The frame is an older Art Deco Era wood frame with gilt. The backing on the print has not been opened or removed. We can see light spots under the glass. We can not be sure if they are on the glass or the matte board. We did not want to open the back of the print up since it is sealed. We see light minimal spotting on the print itself although most of the darker spots are seen around the print on the matte board or the glass surrounding the matte board. The frame measures 14 3/4" L X 11 3/4" H and is in Very Good condition with no damage seen. We can not be sure exactly how large the print itself is but the portion of the print showing through the matte board is 7" X 10".
