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 (Maroon), 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 1933 Boston Redskins (now Washington Redskins) uniform is the original artwork that was used in the creation of this Washington Redskins uniform evolution print and tens of thousands of other Washington Redskins 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

In July 1932, a group headed by the incredibly colorful and controversial George Preston Marshall was awarded the inactive Boston franchise for the 1932 NFL season (Boston had an NFL team in 1929, then it became inactive; it appears that the 1929 Boston franchise had previously been in Duluth MN where they played from 1923 to 1927). The new Boston team is named the Braves after baseball's Boston Braves of the National League, and ends up playing its home games at Braves Field home of the Boston Braves baseball team.In 1933, after a brutally attended 1932 season, Marshall moves his team to fabled Fenway Park and changes the team name to the Redskins in search of larger crowds. Even after the franchise moved to Washington in 1937, the team keeps the Redskins name.What I love about this 1933 Redskins jersey is the fact that is features a logo (an Indian head profile) on the front of the jersey, not a uniform number. I can think of only one other instance a logo graced the front of an NFL jersey instead of a uniform number, that being the 1933 Pittsburgh Steelers who'se jersey featured the City of Pittsburgh crest. The other instances where there is no number on the front of the jersey, it was either a blank jersey (1929 NY Giants) or writing (1921 Green bay Packers) or stripes (1920 Chicago Bears).Note also the fact that the 1933 Redskins helmet was burgundy in color. It would switch over to gold in the mid 30's, and stay gold into the early 60's before returning to burgundy.As for the 2nd year Redskins, they go 5-5-2 including home wins over the eventual champion Chicago Bears and runner up New York Giants.
