$ 1,000 or more!
I am also interested in the Chicago Portrait Company as I have an artist painting that has a plate on the back of the frame dated 1907 of my great grandparents. I am wondering if they had sales reps traveling northern Michigan to redo the picture that was taken.
I have a similar photo of my father from 1924 when he was a baby. The back of the wooden oval frame has the Chicago Potrait Company stamp and price of $3.90 on it. The glass is oval at top, square at bottom and convexed. There is more information on the Chicago Portrait Company at this website. Hope this helps.
You just go to the gift and flower shop buy a picture frame which costs 5,000 and then add your own picture in.§EscapeNinja§
He means the black widow she only bought the picture not the frame to cover the portrait The scream
I have a large oval portrait in the same type of frame, framed by the Chicago Portrait Company as well. My portrait is of my Great, Great Grandmother, and the portrait was probably taken in the 1930's or 1940's, haven't narrowed that down yet.
I'd like to know too
On the back of picture frame backings are hooks. when you get everything in the picture frame you just take your finger and move the hook under the frame.

I don't know if this will help or not. I have an old mirror (bought at Antique store in Minnesota) and on the back is a paper label that says: Western Picture Frame Co., 2600-26?? South Union Avenue, Chicago, Ill. Item No. 1628. I too would like to know more about this company - when it was in business and for how long. At least the little information I have gives a location.
The portrait of Colonel Pyncheon appeared to clench its fists and frown, and then the body left the picture frame.
