This beauty was super cheap, but SWMBO for one thinks any price was too much to pay. I guess this will have to live in the man cave/shop area. You haven't gotten a tour of that space, and I may never show it, it's such a pile of tools, projects, and detritus.
This is in surprisingly good condition. I went over the frame with a tiny bit of Feed 'N Wax and wiped it dry. I'm guessing the picture dates to the 1950s or 60s, based on the era of the fabric. The tiger is made of some kind of furry/fleecy material. Has anyone else seen something like this? Chinese perhaps?
The claws are painted on below the paws.
Here's a closeup of the fabric.
You can see this writing on the back and the back also shows that the fabric is stretched over a piece of wood for a solid backing.
Does anyone recognize the characters or have some idea of what it says?
