Two Faced Beauty

A while back I scored two home crafted frames; one hand carved German style frame and one 'Tramp Art' frame. They are in a good shape considering their age and the backside reveals some of that history. The first one has a scrap of old newspaper attached to the back ('Hamburg, March 18 1902') and the Tramp Art frame is build from carved layers of wood from old cigar boxes. You can tell a lot about the origin and age of a frame if you inspect the backside, and in these cases it's literal.
