As emblems of the goddess Venus, the lush red roses on these gorgeously printed antique 19th century photo mats leave no doubt that they were meant to showcase the people you love most. Measuring 8" x 11", possibly cut down from larger size, they're of heavy cardboard surfaced with paper. One features summer blooms only -- lilies and mixed roses -- while the other adds holly and mistletoe to forsythia and a Christmas rose. Although more than 100 years old, the designs are as vivid as if printed yesterday. Minor damage to the reverses will never show when pictures are framed.
