Ancestor Portrait For Sale on 1stDibs

At 1stDibs, there are many versions of the ideal ancestor portrait for your home. Each ancestor portrait for sale was constructed with extraordinary care, often using paper, wood and fabric. There are many kinds of the ancestor portrait you’re looking for, from those produced as long ago as the 18th Century to those made as recently as the 20th Century. An ancestor portrait, designed in the Art Deco, Mid-Century Modern or Neoclassical style, is generally a popular piece of furniture. Many designers have produced at least one well-made ancestor portrait over the years, but those crafted by Christoffer Relander, Frances F. Denny and Katherine Fraser are often thought to be among the most beautiful.

How Much is a Ancestor Portrait?

An ancestor portrait can differ in price owing to various characteristics — the average selling price 1stDibs is $3,280, while the lowest priced sells for $400 and the highest can go for as much as $11,000.

Finding the Right Wall Decorations for You

An empty wall in your home is a blank canvas, and that’s good news. Whether you’ve chosen to arrange a collage of paintings in a hallway or carefully position a handful of wall-mounted sculptures in your dining room, there are a lot of options for beautifying your space with the antique and vintage wall decor and decorations available on 1stDibs.

If you’re seeking inspiration for your wall decor, we’ve got some ideas (and we can show you how to arrange wall art, too).

“I recommend leaving enough space above the piece of furniture to allow for usable workspace and to protect the art from other items damaging it,” says Susana Simonpietri, of Brooklyn home design studio Chango & Co.

Hanging a single attention-grabbing large-scale print or poster over your bar or bar cart can prove intoxicating, but the maximalist approach of a salon-style hang, a practice rooted in 17th-century France, can help showcase works of various shapes, styles and sizes on a single wall or part of a wall.

If you’re planning on creating an accent wall — or just aiming to bring a variety of colors and textures into a bedroom — there is more than one way to decorate with wallpaper. Otherwise, don’t overlook what textiles can introduce to a space. A vintage tapestry can work wonders and will be easy to move when you’ve found that dream apartment in another borough.

Express your taste and personality with the right ornamental touch for the walls of your home or office — find a range of contemporary art, vintage photography, paintings and other wall decor and decorations on 1stDibs now.
