1932 MOTHER MOTTO PICTURE, like Marigold, might be Marigold but there is no signature, bottom left says only " ... cago & N.Y. ... ure frame co.", 7" x 11"; very good to good condition, something was nibbling on this as 3 of the edges are rough and it really no longer quite fits the frame  (it is very close so there are not glaring gaps), the bottom left corner-edge area is the worst, there are places where the topmost layer of paper of the print is gone exposing overly white patches (especially noticeable on the bottom left), there is overall yellowing and a couple of spots of foxing (spots from aging - kind of rust colored), the frame is in excellent condition with very slight wear; even though it has difficulties, this picture still looks pretty good, I am pricing only slightly more than I would for the frame alone    #MO28251    $23.00

God bless the corners of this house
And be the lintel blest;
And bless the hearth and bless the board
And bless each place of rest:
And bless the door that opens wide
To Stranger as to Kin;
And bless each crystal window pane
That lets the starlight in;
And bless the roof-tree overhead
And every sturdy wall;
The peace of man, the peace of God
The peace of love on all.
