M.B. Parkinson's "Cupid Awake" and "Cupid Asleep"

The frames are an unknown wood. They are stained a very dark walnut/mahogany. The frames are approximately 11 by 14 inches. The black and white prints are protected by glass. Both prints have the artist's signature and freehand copyright mark of 1897 in the artist's handwritten script as well as the imprinted title and copyright marks.

On cardboard on the back of "Cupid Awake," there is an appraiser's signature "Joyce R." Also handwritten on the cardboard is "picture & frame from the home of Belle and Logan Minner 1985" and "Cupid Awake 1897" and "Original frame & photo-M.B. Parkinson." There is also a seal under protective tape for the Rosenbaum Co. Picture Frame Department.

On the back of "Cupd Asleep," there are two appraiser's signatures/initials "J. Runell" and a set of illegible initials.  Also handwritten on the back is "From the home of Belle & Logan Minner 1985" and "Cupid asleep 1897 M.B. Parkinson" and "Original frame & photo."
