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 1991 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. 1991 was a Super Bowl winning season for the Washington Redskins.

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

The Redskins won it all in 1982, and then again in 1987, and here they go once more in 1991.After a terrific 14-2 regular season, the Redskins knock off the Falcons 24-7, followed by the Lions 41-10. Thus it was on to Super Bowl XXVI vs the Buffalo Bills (this was the Bills second of 4 straight Super Bowl appearances).The Redskins capture the Vince Lombardi Trophy for the 3rd time (1982, 1987, 1991) and the NFL Championship for the 5th time (1937, 1942, 1982, 1987, 1991) as they beat the Bills 37-24 in Super Bowl XXVI in Minneapolis. MVP was QB Mark Rypien.As for the 1991 uniform, look carefully and you'll see a small NFL shield on both the jersey's neckline and the left thigh of the pants. If you look closely at almost all NFL uniforms worn from 1991 on, you'll note this same small NFL shield patch on the jersey's neckline. Most NFL uniforms added the NFL logo patch to the neck, and to the upper left thigh of the pants, beginning in 1991 the only exception being in 1994 when teams wore throwback uniforms, in most cases these throwback uniforms didn't have the NFL shield on the neck & thigh.Also, if you look closely, the familiar Redskins helmet logo is slightly differentthe feather design has undergone a change since the previously pictured 1982 version.Allow us a quick word about Coach Joe Gibbs, who led the Redskins from 1981 to 1992. Gibbs was the most successful coach in Washington history, finishing with a record of 140-65-0, eight playoff appearances, five NFC Eastern division championships and three Super Bowl wins (XVII in 1982, XXII in 1987, and XXVI in 1991). In 1982 and 1983 he was named NFL Coach of the Year, and in 1996 he was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
