|The pictures below show larger views of this Old Burwood Products Company Decorative Cameo Wall Hanging. The Burwood Products Company had made all kinds of wall hangings, clocks, and many other home decorating items from the 1930s to the 1990s. This one is not dated but it is believed to be from the 1950s or 1960s.|
The cameo and backing board panel were once in a frame, but unfortunately it was found with the frame missing. Please note: this is NOT made of carved shell. The resin or hard plastic cameo is mounted on black velvet and ready to be framed again. On the backing board panel is a hook for hanging and a partial sticker or label. It is marked as follows:
(ARABESQUE) BY BURWOOD PRODUCTS COMPANY
TRAVERSE CITY, MICHIGAN
CAMEO - BLACK
103 (on back of the velvet section)
204 (on back of the backing board)
The velvet board with the cameo measures 4-1/16'' x 5-1/16'' and the backing board panel is 3/8'' larger (both ways). The cameo and black velvet appear to be in mint condition as pictured. as stated above, the original frame is missing.
