Reverse Painting ON GLASS, with ImPeRfeCtioNs...

My criteria/check list for
 K*E*E*P*I*N*G a SHaBBy!*!*!
 •Old/Vintage, •Great Form, •Time-Worn Patina, •Less Commonly Seen, •One-Of-A-Kind, •Crusty, •Rusty, •Tattered, •Worn, •Torn, •Original Paint, •Silver-Loss, Tarnished
AND....  OR...
I Instantly "Vamp-Over-It"

 What FIRST Caught my eye with this SHaBBy F*I*N*D was it's incredible "Natural" Time~Worn P*A*T*I*N*A...  Upon closer examination, I saw the paint patina "was under the glass"... Perhaps at one time framed & protecting a photo???  - or - maybe covering a clock face? One-Of-A-Kind ViNTaGe F*I*N*D...  



The Oval Center was definitely calling out to "Frame Something"...




I found the perfect ViNtaGe Birdie Print
to "Show-Case" it's beauty...  
I may display it on a small easel adorned with twigs, 
but for now it's delightful on this brass/silver tray...
**Imperfections**
 "Soooo much more interesting than brand new"!*!*!
