- Pattern: Unknown Prints
- Made in Italy
- Vintage: 1970’s – 1980’s (estimated)
- Details: Nice set of framed prints depicting people in the Italian Renaissance gathered in groups, lounging and socializing. These are imitation Florentine style frames, the prints are under glass but the frames are plastic, although a good imitation, they are painted green with gold edges, distressed to indicate age and really fool the eye from afar they resemble wood. The prints are not on quality paper so there is some rippling, however, in the right location, they will look nice. The plastic backing is embossed with: “Trade Mark O.F.M. Made in Italy.” There is also a gold foil label from the importer, Action Industries that reads: “Action Cheswick, PA 15824, Hand Crafted in Italy”. These are not for everyone but a nice accent in a Victorian or Renaissance decor.
- Material: Frames: Plastic and Glass. Prints: Paper
- Dimensions: 8.25 inches Tall, 6.5 inches Long and 0.75 of an inch Wide.
- Condition: Vintage – Used. Good Condition.

The other frame is in very good condition. Please review all pictures and make sure you love this item before purchasing, we can’t accept returns.

Action Industries Inc, was founded in 1917 by the Comay family in Cheswick PA. At the height of it’s success they were one of Pittsburgh’s largest companies, its employment topped 500 in the late 1980’s. Unfortunately they made some bad business decisions by diversifying into manufacturing and retail ventures that even included a light bulb and lamp manufacturing plant. By the time they realized the mistake and tried to return to their core business, it had practically evaporated. In August 1995, they closed its plastics manufacturing plant and by the late 1990’s they were out of business.
