I can't help but have Valentine's Day on my mind. These framed Cupid prints are from the house where I grew up. I remember them either being in our guest bedroom or my bedroom. I can't recall any special stories about these prints. I just remember them always being something that decorated our home. The metal oval frames aren't in the best shape, but I like them because they show signs of age. They definitely have character.
Since I didn't know much about them, I decided to look on eBay and Etsy for information. I saw several of these vintage Cupid awake/Cupid asleep prints for sale. One description read, "marked copyright 1897, by M. B. Parkinson". The little girl who is Cupid is named Josephine. It appears that these prints were quite common and many people had them in their homes.
