A rare, matched pair of historic New Mexican tin and glass frames with one central and four surrounding panels containing fancy, multi-colored wallpaper, circa 1880-1885


Matched pairs are some of the most difficult to find pieces in all of historic New Mexico tinwork. This exceptional matching pair of tin frames were beautifully-crafted in the highly-recognizable and complex style of the great Ojo de la Vaca tinwork master, Jose Maria Apodaca, by an unknown and extremely accomplished follower.

The frame at left measures 10 1/2” height, 8 3/4” width and the central panel contains a black-and-white religious book image of St. Patrick against a colored wallpaper background. It is in excellent original condition with two cracks to the upper glass panel.

The frame at right measures 10 1/2” height, 8 3/4” width and the central panel contains a black-and-white religious book image of St. Cyril and Methodius against a colored wallpaper background. It is also in excellent original condition with two cracks to the right side glass panel.



Price $4,800/pair, sold as a pair only
