The framed puzzle of Norman Rockwell’s “The Golden Rule” is in very good condition.
The front of the piece states, "My Adventures Among The U.S. Senators by Dean Acheson April 1, 1961, 15 cents"
There are no breaks, cracks, water damages, or bad odors with this framed vintage treasure. However, the dark stained frame does show signs of discoloration, wear and rub marks. Also, there are some vintage rub areas, discoloration, and wear places on the framed puzzle. The little rub or wear places appear to be from rubbing up against something. Hence, leaving a little indention in the puzzle pieces.
There are sliding metal corner pieces on the back side to help prevent stress and pulling on the frame in the corners.
The metal wire wall hanger is already installed on the back of the frame
Concerning this piece, it is very possible it is the only one in existence. This represents a very iconic piece of American Civil Rights history. Also, the Golden Rule work was recognized by the United Nations.
At first glance, it is only a framed puzzle. However, after thinking about what that means the following begins to emerge. Someone who appreciated the Golden Rule and what this work stands for took the time to put the puzzle together. In addition, they decided to frame the puzzle so that it would be a constant reminder for generations to come.
One reference noted that the artist - Norman Rockwell - actually inserted a picture of his wife and child in the background.
The decorative possibilities for this piece are many. The living room or entryway wall would welcome this piece. Also, the study would be enhanced with the addition of this gorgeous work. Since the frame is closer to a darker stain, this framed artwork would blend and contrast greatly with other decor themes. The conversations that will come from this piece will be many.
The collector will appreciate this framed puzzle for its very good condition and rare availability in a framed state.
The framed piece weighs approximately 72 oz.
The framed Saturday Evening Post puzzle of Norman Rockwell's Golden Rule measures 25 7/8" tall x 21" x 1.5" deep.
