Note: Frame contains glass. Special care is required in the shipment of framed items, both modern and vintage.  Because this item has glass in the frame, we would prefer to disassemble the backing in order to remove the glass.  This means that the backing and the glass will be removed and the frame will be shipped without the glass; it is the customer's responsibility to replace it if desired and have the backing put back on.  Any frame shop should be able to do this for you.

Extra shipping required:  $35.00 insured UPS east of the Mississippi, $50.00 west of the Mississippi.
