The framed Betty Boop "Center Stage" print is in great to excellent condition. The gorgeous print is a 1996 King Feature Syndicate Incorporated/Fleischer Studios Incorporated work. The metal wire wall-hanger is already installed on the back. The bag with the wall-hanging materials is intact on the metal wire. The back sticker notes that acid-free materials were used in the framing of this print.
The colors of the print and stamps are in excellent condition. The colors are so vivid and fresh that they make one want to touch the canvas.
Betty Boop was marketed toward and had much to do with entertainment for our servicemen before, during, and after World War II.
In 1933 Betty Boop was used for recruiting soldiers.
There are three characters featured in this print - including Betty Boop.
There are no breaks, cracks, chips, or water damages on the framed print. There are some little places where it appears a little surface scuff was simply colored in. They are very hard to notice unless the work is inspected up close and moving it under a light. There are some vintage wear and rub marks on the frame - very hard to notice due to the black color and most likely from storage and/or transportation.
The glass appears to be in excellent condition as far as we can tell. It may be that if the light were to be shined directly on an area that a little wear place might show up. However, the glass and the matting look great. There are a couple of little tan-brown debris pieces close to the corners which are most likely dust or particles from the backing. To notice them one would have to get within 12" and slowly scan the edges very closely.
The Betty Boop badge has a slight rub mark - toward the middle right. It can only be seen by turning the frame while under a light.
The paper backing is in great condition. There is a little indention in the bottom left corner and a couple of little push places on the back. Pictures may or may not show these little areas.
The decorative possibilities for this beautiful Betty Boop print are many. The living room or hallway wall would be greatly enhanced with the addition of this gorgeous work. Also, since the work is so clean and fresh it could also be displayed by standing up in a china cabinet or display curio that has tall shelves or openings. The study or she-shed would also welcome this beautiful wall-hanging print. We also want to mention that Betty Boop was very popular with our servicemen. Hence, it would be a great work to display in the man-cave.
This is the type of collectible that would make a great gift. The Betty Boop print is super rare and made with materials that add to its longevity - heirloom quality.
The collector will appreciate this gorgeous Betty Boop wall art for its great to excellent condition and the way it is showcased.
The three stamps displayed under the print appear to be very new and in unused condition. The three stamps included are 1) Cole Porter, 2) Peace Unites, and 3) George M. Cohan - Yankee Doodle Dandee.
The framed Betty Boop 1996 "Center Stage" wall-hanging print weighs approximately 64 oz.
The framed Betty Boop cartoon print measures 21.5" tall x 17 5/8" wide x 1" deep.
***Free Shipping in the USA

***Shipping for Everywhere Else on the planet:
If you are from outside the United States and you wish to purchase this product put in your correct address and it should populate a quote. If a shipping cost cannot be populated outside of the United States it is possible that the item is too big to be shipped or it is listed for local pickup only. However, please check with me to make sure as sometimes there could be system errors. If you have further questions concerning shipping outside of the USA please contact me.
***Note on Measurements: All measurements are taken and described as close as possible. The actual laying down or standing up of an item may appear to change that size a little bit. Where only an approximate measurement is available we will put approximately in the listing.
***Our Measurements for clothing are taken with the garment laying flat with closures fastened - zippers are zipped and buttons buttoned.
***The Bust measurement is obtained by measuring across the flat chest of the garment from armpit to armpit and then multiplying that number by two. To get the chest measurement simply divide the Bust by two.
***We clean our vintage inventory of surface dirt and dust before we list it on our site. We would not want to receive something dirty so we are not going to send our customers something with original dust or dirt. However please note that after shipping we recommend all items be cleaned thoroughly before use. This does three things: (1) It helps you know your item, (2) It helps you ensure your item is clean according to your standards, and (3) It removes any dust or grime that may have come from the shipping and delivery process.
***We do not polish or repaint our inventory as many of our customers prefer the vintage patina look over a new painted or polished look.
***Please pay close attention to the pictures as they may show more than I may be able to explain.
***Please note that we do not enhance all of our pictures. Sometimes the first picture is enhanced for lighting purposes, etc. Therefore, the other pictures should be in very close agreement with the color.
***We aim to be good stewards of our planet; therefore, we may use or reuse boxes and/or packing that are clean and ship worthy.
***The year of manufacturing or year-it-was-made is an estimate based on experience, similar items, and/or appearance.
***Textiles and Fabrics such as linens, tapestries, clothing, tablecloths, or simple craft materials may be wrinkled or have lines upon arrival as they are folded for shipping. It is recommended they be laid out or hung up.
***As is common with pre-owned items they could have little marks that are not so easily detectable - we refer to these as vintage wear and rub marks. While I do personally inspect each item, I can miss small marks that may not show up with a regular inside light. That being said, I try to be very picky and careful to make sure the details are explained truthfully, honestly, and upfront.
***Virtually all pre-owned items have vintage wear and rub marks. This is simply a term that we have coined to point out that because: (1) they are older, (2) most likely they are not in their original plastic, wrapping, or packaging, (3) have been stored, (4) transported, (5) and handled - they are very likely to have little, small, or slight discolorations, marks, places, wear, etc. Hence, this is why we often have longer descriptions. We try very hard to make sure you know what we know.
