Glad you are enjoying it in your home. I'm sure it would make his grandfather very happy. I like the idea of having things in our homes that have meaning to us.

He was gifted with artistic talent, that is for sure. I just love the fact that you are using these pieces, so many people keep things packed away and I don't know what they are waiting for. Use them while you can enjoy them is my feeling.

That pillow would have been so beautiful on my grandparent's brown mohair sofa from the 30's. Really lovely.

What beautiful art work and a family treasure which makes the pieces even more meaningful.  It is nice you are able to display the items so everyone can enjoy and appreciate the work your grandparents did.  Thanks for sharing!

Welcome to the boards.

 

Looks like very good quality  American made!  I think it would look perfect against your dining room wall.

Hope you enjoy it for many years to come.
