Available here is a pair of beautiful vintage Italian Baroque or Rococo wall art in metal frames depicting scenes of country life for the middle class in 18th century Italy. In one oval frame we have a young suitor trying to woo his beloved and in the other there are two woman being serenaded. This would be a wonderful addition to a shabby chic cottage style home in wall decor. It can be hung in both Italian Baroque or French Country style designs.

DESCRIPTION: The large frame measures approximately 8-1/4" inches tall by 5-1/2" inches wide. Label on back states: © 1984 Made in Italy for/pour Action Industries, Cheswick PA, No. 9274 and still show the Montgomery Ward sticker on it. The smaller frame measures approximately 6-3/4" inches tall by 5" inches wide and has the same label on the back with the exception of not being able to read the product number, however it is No. 9271 according to the bar code. The bottom of the frame has "Made in Italy" embossed in the metal on the back.

CONDITION: Both frames and pictures are in excellent condition showing no cracks in the glass or breakage in the metal frames, The colors in the prints are still very vibrant and colorful. The brass/pot metal has tarnished with age and environment and is not a bright gold finish, but more subdued.

FINE PRINT: As with all handcrafted vintage and antique items such as wood, tin, stoneware, porcelain, bone china or glass items; there may be normal wear, age crazing or unique details that do not take away from the function, value or overall purpose and appearance of these beautiful pieces, but add to the history and character of the item. Pottery irregularities such as, dings, dents, bumps, scratches, bubbles, glaze pops, dips and glazing slips, color variations, ink/paint spots under the glaze, mold lines, etc., within or on each piece are sometimes created from the manufacturing process. These are things that happen when pottery is handcrafted, manufactured or fired.

If there are any major/minor damages it will be described in the "Condition" paragraph section above. I do not in any way clean, polish or change the content of this item so as not to affect its original prominence or value. I leave that decision up to the new owner. And… as with ANY vintage item they have been previously owned so there may be signs of normal wear. Look at pictures carefully to determine item condition for yourself before you purchase. Depending on your computer monitor's resolution and color settings, the picture may differ slightly in color from the actual item. ALL ITEMS SOLD “AS IS ~ AS FOUND”.

FURNITURE ~ Local pick up only - no shipping available unless you make your own arrangements. I will be more than happy to help in this area if need be. Local Guadalupe/Comal County Texas delivery is available for a fee for gas, time and labor. Please make an inquiry as to applicable fees and schedule for delivery. See listings ads for shipping options available.

I ship Monday through Thursday and occasionally on Friday CST. If purchased late Thursday or Friday the item may ship on Monday. Most orders are processed within 24 hours, but occasionally 3-5 days is considered the normal shipping time. I no longer do special overnight requests due to expense, time and complications from past shippers.

Once an order is given to the shipping carrier, the package becomes the carrier's responsibility to deliver and Tridents Treasure is no longer liable if item gets lost, stolen or damaged unless insurance has been requested and added to the shipping charge before purchase. "Please be advised, buyers must have a secure delivery point." Shipping carriers will NOT accept insurance claims for packages missing or stolen upon completed delivery from your address location. Once USPS/Shippers makes a final delivery scan, Tridents Treasure is not responsible for items missing from the delivery location. No refunds or reimbursement are granted in this scenario. The buyer will be responsible for filing a missing package claim with their local post office and/or reporting the theft to authorities."

PLEASE NOTE: Due to recent Postal increases shipping is no longer inexpensive and more often than not, I've had to absorb the extra costs due to miscalculation in not knowing which state (distance) these items will ship to or the packaged (size and weight); therefore, I try to the best of my ability to give you the best rates possible depending on the item being shipped. If you do not like what the shipping charge comes to, please do not purchase and then complain. Contact me on the item you are interested in prior to purchasing and I will work with you to get the best accurate rate possible from differing sources depending on shipper method.

Unlike some Sellers, I do not try to make extra money on your shipping costs (I try very hard to give you the best estimated shipping rates wherever possible according to weight, box size and traveling distance). However, freight is determined after purchase through PayPal & Etsy according to weight, dimensions, zip code or address information given and method of shipment used. (Some handling charges may apply.)


If your item is damaged during transit at the post office for delivery it is out of our hands unless you have insurance that will reimburse you for the cost of the item. As with their Postal Policies, the shipping fees are never refundable by the Post Office or Tridents Treasure. That is not a covered expense and will not be reimbursed.

Combined shipping costs can be difficult to determine ahead of time, especially when you are buying multiple items. Therefore, the multiple item selection on shipping fees are only an estimate of what it might cost to combine in one package. Handling charges is the cost of packing material, shipping tape, labels, printer ink, trips to the post office, gas and other fees associated in the cost of shipping these items out. In most cases I end up paying the extra shipping charges up to $3 over your estimated amount, but if this should go over that I will then request that you pay the additional shipping charges before an item ships.


Shipping only to the 48 continental United States. NO foreign sales/shipments without prior consent. If you contact me about a foreign shipping charge and it is agreeable to you, please allow me the opportunity to change the listing shipping information to reflect your country and the charge before you purchase. I can place a RESERVE with your name on the item until you purchase. You will have 24 hours to complete your transaction before I remove your name from the reserve listing and allow it to go public. This includes U.S. buyers.

For customers outside the US: International customers are responsible for all customs fees associated with shipping to their respective countries. Orders that are shipped to countries outside of the United States may be subject to import taxes, customs duties and fees levied by the destination country. This means that you are responsible for any fees that are associated with your purchase. I am NOT responsible for any additional taxes, customs fees, etc. that your country may charge you. Please be aware of what your country limits are before purchasing. According to EU regulations, you have 14 days to return an item. You are responsible for the return shipping fee/charge. Original shipping fees on purchased items are non-refundable. Currently, there is no Insurance on International orders available. If item is lost, stolen, broken in transit or broken after delivery I am not responsible once it's out of my hands and no refunds are due in such cases.

All applicable duties, custom fees or taxes which requires the recipient’s country upon entry of the goods are paid by customer. Please contact your local customs office for more details, information and estimated fees before ordering. Please note that these charges are not charged by us, and therefore cannot be refunded by us.

Shipping to PayPal confirmed addresses only. THIS IS A BIG ISSUE: Please make sure that your PayPal or Etsy address is up to date with the correct city & zip code information so that your package will get to you in a timely manner. It is NOT my responsibility to check your shipping address - please make sure your address is updated in PayPal and Etsy. I do not Drop-Ship items to any other addresses than to the original buyers address.

Items ship Priority Mail, First Class Mail, Parcel Post or United Parcel Service. Although I have to enter method of shipment, I reserve the right to choose which method of shipment is acceptable after purchase of an item. UNLESS A FLAT RATE IS GIVEN, ALL other shipping fees quoted are only estimates and some may be higher or lower. Please know that some shipping calculators are not always correct. If they are higher I absorb the extra costs up to $3.00 dollars, anything over that you will be invoiced for.

DAMAGES: I am not responsible for Lost, Stolen, Damaged Packages w/o INSURANCE, or shipping delays caused by the shipper or bad weather. Do not ask me to refund if any of these circumstances happen with your package. Once I ship your item out it’s out of my hands and it is your responsibility to put in for a claim form. You will need to do the following in case of damage: keep the item and all packing material including the box since you will have to give them over to your local Post Office as proof of damage. Please DO take photos of the packaging and broken item. File a Claim at the Post Office (you can pick one up at your local post office) or file on-line at their website. Be sure to include pictures of the damages. If you need further information on the claim form and you need to contact me about the receipt, I will be happy to help. Original shipping fees on purchased items are non-refundable.

Insurance only covers shipping damages or loss and will not cover a client’s accidental fault upon installation or handling once the item arrived. If shipped by Priority Mail it covers up to $50 in insurance unless you pay extra fees for anything valued over $50. It also provides a tracking number. Please note that you only get reimbursed for the actual cost of the item, not any shipping charges since we do not profit from it, but in fact, get charged a fee on the total sale including the shipping charges from PayPal & Etsy. Delivery Confirmation is included for U.S. only when paying via PayPal.


We prefer PAYPAL payments only at this time for the simple ease of processing your order and the receipts they provide. We reserve the right to cancel any purchase at any time for any reason.

Returns & exchanges
I don't accept returns, exchanges, or cancellations
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
Additional return information
Due to the nature of my vintage, antique, hard to replace and one-of-a-kind items, all sales are final purchased via Etsy. I do not offer refunds, store credits, or exchanges. I describe all items through both photography and description as accurately as possible. If you have any questions about a particular item, please make sure to contact me prior to making your purchase. Items are being purchased in "As Is" and "As Found"condition. All furniture items must be picked up within 7 days of purchase. After the 7th day a $25 a day storage fee will apply.

All sales are FINAL. As with most listings I do not offer refunds on any items unless I have grossly misrepresented something. Buyers remorse is no excuse, nor is not fully reading or not understanding the information provided in my listings or policies. You can always contact me beforehand. If you broke the item mishandling it after its arrival it's your responsibility, not mine. Most items (IF) shipped by Priority Mail are insured up to $50. If an item is over the $50 dollar price mark please be sure to ask for extra Insurance to protect your item from mishandling by the post office. There is an extra fee for that service. You can always contact me for clarification before you buy should you not understand something in the ad. Any item refund is solely upon our discretion after a thorough investigation via photos and description. A 15% restocking fee will be deducted before issuing a refund if deemed applicable.

If for any reason I offer an exchange if there is a duplicate available, it would be the buyers responsibility to pay for all shipping costs both ways, the item being returned to me and the cost of shipping the item back to you in an exchange. Buyer agrees that shipping costs are not the responsibility of the seller/shop and never-ever refundable for any reason since sellers do not profit from it. Once it's in the hands of the shipper we no longer have control over your item. You have (2) days after the receipt of your item to contact me with any issues. If we come to terms, you will have another (4) days to return the item. The item MUST be in “like new” or “same condition” as purchased without any visible signs of wear, tear, damages, exchanges or alteration of any kind.

If a return is requested for other reasons and I agree, there is a $15.00 restocking fee per item over $25 or 15% under. Buyer pays return shipping cost. I must be contacted regarding a return within 2 days of the buyer receiving an item and the item must be returned within 4 days and mailed to me with tracking. All items are sent with tracking. If a sale is cancelled prior to shipment, there is a $7.00 fee.

I am not unreasonable and understand that things do come up from time to time that cannot be helped and I will work with you as long as you honestly inform me of your situation. If a refund is due, I expect the item to be returned within (14) days after receipt/delivery and returned in original condition with new or original packaging if boxed. If shipped by padded envelope, please use a new one. Again, all sales are considered FINAL.

Additional policies

There is nothing worse for me than a customer who buys something from my shop and is disappointed after arrival. This is the reason I place lots of information in the listing ad. Please take time to read it thoroughly, even twice if you have to so that you (my valued client) understand what it is you are buying and can make an informed decision on whether or not to purchase. I'm always open to inquiries before you buy.

Most items are new, used, handcrafted, antique and/or vintage. I make every effort to describe items fully and to the best of my knowledge. I do not represent myself to be an expert and I will do my best to answer all questions regarding information I have researched or am given on these items. If you need more pictures of an item I will be happy to accommodate you when making an inquiry. Items are purchased “AS IS” , new, used, handcrafted, antique or vintage.

Feedback is very beneficial to both buyer and seller. Please review my feedback and buy with confidence. If for some reason you are not satisfied with your product, please do not use the feedback forum to complain or leave negative feedback. Contact me directly before leaving neutral or negative feedback so we can discuss any issues you may have. I reserve the right to use my discretion on resolving your issues. I guarantee it will be handled promptly. Thank You.
