This beautifully framed piece features an original piece of watercolor artwork glass-framed in an attractive two inch wide black resin frame with a double mat. The outer dimensions of the framed piece are approximately 17” wide x 24.5” high, although the exact size will vary according to the size of the original piece of art.

At the core of the framed piece is the actual piece of original artwork as painted by the artist on textured 100% rag, water-marked watercolor paper. In many cases the original artwork has handwritten notes in pencil from the artist (be sure to “See the actual artwork without the frame” elsewhere in this website). Simply put, this is beautiful, one-of-a-kind artwork.

The outer mat is a rich textured black acid-free mat with a decorative inset white v-groove, while the inner mat is a complimentary colored acid-free mat reflecting one of the team’s primary colors. The website image of this framed piece shows the mat color that we suggest (Red), but since each piece is custom framed, we are happy to use whatever color mat you wish (depending on availability) – our standard mat colors are:

Light Blue / Dark Blue / Brown / Maroon (close to brown) / White / Silver / Gold / Yellow (bright yellow) / Green (dark green) / Orange / Purple / Red (bright red, somewhat close to PMS 186)

Beneath the artwork is a silver plate with black text describing the original artwork. The text for this piece will read:

This original, one-of-a-kind watercolor painting of the 1946-47 Chicago Blackhawks jersey is the original artwork that was used in the creation of this Chicago Blackhawks uniform evolution print and tens of thousands of other Chicago Blackhawks products that have been sold across North America. This original piece of art was painted by artist Tino Paolini for Maple Leaf Productions Ltd.

Beneath the silver plate is a 3” x 9” reproduction of a well known, best-selling print that celebrates the history of the team. The print beautifully illustrates the chronological evolution of the team’s uniform and shows you how the original art was used in the creation of this print. If you look closely, you will see that the print features the actual artwork being offered for sale. The 3” x 9” print looks like this:

The piece is framed with an extremely high quality framing glass. We have used this glass style for many years with excellent results. We package every piece very carefully in a double layer of bubble wrap and a rigid double-wall cardboard package to avoid breakage at any point during the shipping process, but if damage does occur, we will gladly repair, replace or refund. Please note that all of our products come with a 90 day 100% satisfaction guarantee.

Each framed piece also comes with a two page letter signed by Scott Sillcox describing the history behind the art. If there was an extra-special story about your piece of art, that story will be included in the letter. When you receive your framed piece, you should find the letter lightly attached to the front of the framed piece.

If you have any questions, at any time, about the actual artwork or about any of the artist’s handwritten notes on the artwork, I would love to tell you about them. Simply email me, Scott Sillcox, at scott@heritagesportsart.com and I will tell you everything I can about your original piece of art. The artists and I spent well over ten years of our lives creating these pieces of original artwork, and in many cases there are stories I can tell you about your actual piece of artwork that might add an extra element of interest in your one-of-a-kind purchase.

History

At the conclusion of the 1946-47 season the Blackhawks found themselves in last place in the six-team NHL. They managed to win only 19 games and surrendered 274 goals against when no other team in the league gave up more than 193.The club held its own in the goal scoring department finishing the season second in the league to the Toronto Maple Leafs in that department with 193. The trio of Max Bentley, his brother Doug and Bill Mosienko, known as the Pony line, carried the Hawks offensively. All three finished in the top 10 in total points with Max Bentley finishing first over all with 72 points, edging out Maurice Rocket Richard by one point.  John Marriucci provided team toughness finishing second in the League with 110 penalty minutes.Despite Bentley's second straight scoring title, finishing in last place with a 19-37-4 record meant there would be no playoffs in Chicago.This jersey is certainly synonymous with the aforementioned Chicago greats like the Bentley Brothers and Bill  "three-goals-in-21-seconds Mosienko" is showcased for the highly unusual striping pattern on the sleeves and body of the jersey! Youll also notice that Chief Blackhawk is also now in full colour. Keep an eye on this fellow; he undergoes many subtle changes throughout Chicago's history. For you Blackhawks trivia buffs: did you know that the team's nickname was usually written as two words - Black Hawks - right up until the 1985-86 season?
