Vintage Block Print, Framed & Signed, Nativity Scene, Ken Swanson, 49/100 Limited Edition, Black Aluminum Frame, Off White Mat, Home Decor


The beautiful signed limited-edition 49/100 Ken Swanson original lino-cut block print is in excellent condition. According to a reference, this particular block print was carved, printed, and hand-painted by Ken Swanson in 1989. The gorgeous black anodized brushed aluminum frame, very-clear front glass window, off-white matting, and hand-painted nativity scene were all brought together by the artist - Ken Swanson. Also, there is a metal wire already installed on the back to securely hang this beautiful block print from a wall. Each end of the metal wire is attached to a sliding mount that can be adjusted up or down to help reach the desired angle. The off-white matting enhances the inner white that surrounds the hand-painted nativity scene in the center. Furthermore, the artist has cleverly included a narrow black edge to separate the off-white matting from the white that surrounds the block print. Hence, the three black sections including the black anodized brushed aluminum frame, narrow black edge of the mat, and the black night portrayed in the nativity scene all work together to increase the perception of both depth and overall size. In essence, the use of the three layers of black give the impression of looking down a long hallway or through a door-shaped portal with vibrant and radiating colors just on the other side. When all of the impressive features of this framed block print are fully considered, it is natural to see the wonderful contemporary charm of this collectible Ken Swanson block print.

Please note that screen resolution and/or original lighting could cause the colors to appear lighter or darker than actual. Also, the coffee mug in the photos is not included in this listing as it was used for scale purposes only.

There are no breaks, cracks, chips, or repair places on this beautiful block print. There are some very slight vintage wear, age, and rub marks on this Ken Swanson collectible - mainly in the form of very faint marks on the exterior. Also, there are some very faint cloudy spots on the inside of the glass window most likely due to age. They are hardly noticeable unless it is pulled up close and inspected with a light.

The decorative possibilities for this gorgeous signed limited-edition 49/100 Ken Swanson original lino-cut block print are many. The entryway or living area would be enhanced by the addition of this stunningly impressionistic wall-hanging block print. Also, the man-cave or study area would welcome this gorgeous Ken Swanson block print for its wonderful contemporary charm. In addition, the growing art collection would increase in value and interest upon the arrival of this limited-edition 49/100 original lino-cut block print by Ken Swanson.

The collector will appreciate this gorgeous block print for its excellent condition, stunning impressionism, black anodized brushed aluminum frame, Ken Swanson signature, limited-edition offering, and beautiful overall appearance.

***Free Shipping in the USA

***Shipping will include insurance

***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. 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. Therefore, after shipping we generally recommend all items be cleaned before use. This is not always because they are considered unclean but simply to make you aware of the possibility of needing to be cleaned after shipping and handling. 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.

***Unless noted in the description, we normally do not polish or repaint our inventory as many of our customers prefer the vintage patina look over a new painted or polished appearance.

***Please pay close attention to the pictures as they may show more than I may be able to explain.

***Please note that sometimes we enhance our pictures for sharpness and clarity.

***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 production 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 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.
