$ 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.

Chicago Portrait CompanyChicago Portrait Company was founded in 1893 and located 509 South Wabash Avenue, Chicago, Illinois. Info from visitors:My photo is marked "The Studios of the Chicago Portrait Company. Located on Wabash Ave, Chicago in 1936. There was also a "Chicago Portrait Company" in St Louis, MO in 1919.I have a portrait of a family member taken in 1927 at the Chicago Portrait Company, 509 South Walbash Avenue Chicago Illinois. The gold plate on the back of portrait says this is an Heirloom portrait then it has the lady's name, and at the bottom it says Gothic Design Patent No 65301. One final note at the bottom, on the back of the portrait it also has E H Baese (art director).My Uncle Grant reportedly worked for the Chicago Portrait Company in the 1930s. He would travel around the country, taking photographs of people, and mailing the film to the Chicago Portrait Company. The company would mount the photos in large frames and return them to the customers.Today my mother gave me a portrait of her grand mother and father, Jacob and Kathern Braun, on the back stamped "CATHEDRAL DESIGN Design Patented June 24, 1924 Made and sold by CHICAGO PORTRAIT COMPANY" Looks like it was in a bubble glass frame. Written on the back with a crayon 2/3-2904.I just located two pictures - one of my grandparents, the other, my father when he was about 3 years old. Both frames have bubble glass and metal-like cathedral frames. No date is on the frames but they say Chicago Portrait Company- frame price $7.90. I believe the date to be in the 1920's somewhere.$7.90 was a big price in the 1920's. I have no other information.I too have an oval glassed portrait of my grandfather. On the other side is a portrait of an old man holding a sheep. The signature is ?? Carson. This is all I have. My gr.father was born in 1846 and died in 1926. The portrait is inside a unique bubble glass frame.I have a rare historical book on the corporate history of the Chicago Portrait Company, dated 1905. The information concerns the period 1893 - 1904 andfollows the corprate philosophy, purpose, structure, strategies, etc. It is leather bound, abot 6" by 11" and contains many photographs of personnel, Board Members, facility, equipment, transportion, etc.I have a beautiful waterfall print by W.A. Carson that also has 1924 Chicago Portrait Co. The portrait company got into some legal trouble with the IRS and federal trade commission around that time. They were in the business of enlarging photographs into portraits and misrepresenting them to be handpainted. There was also problems with their contracts and misstating revenue or something like that. Last week on eBay a buck print by W.A. Carson with a cathedral arched frame and convex glass (common for his prints) sold for $61. His original paintings are selling for $1500 and up.My grandfather always had a picture of himself hanging in his basement & I remember looking at it forever as a child. Now that he has been dead for 16 years, it is mine. As I was about to rehang it, I noticed the markings in crayon on the back and the stamped "Price of Frame $5.90 includes back and glass & back only" It then goes on to state "One price-cannot be altered or changed, workmanship and material guaranteed Chicago Portrait Company Chicago, Ill." It too is a cathedral design Stamped "June 3d, 1934"Incorporated in 1893, by Thomas J. Ogara, Thomas J. Durkin, C.M. Stumcke. Address for many years at 590 Wabash, intersection of Wabash and Congress.
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.

Double click the picture frame
Pitcher. The frame contains the picture as the pitcher contains the cream.
What meter is used for a picture frame
I have two paintings with theses numbers on it....... How much would they be worth ?
Millimetres if you are making the picture frame; centimetres if you wish to buy a ready-made frame.
The frame is 1 cm wide.
The most important part of choosing a picture frame is to make sure the frame is not muted by your wall. Never pick a frame that is the same color as the wall behind it. Pick a picture frame that complements the shading in the black and white photograph.
