Information about Vilas Mages

Vilas-Mages Co. was a large framing house located in Chicago (09/03/2005)

Hi, I have found that Vilas-Mages Co. was a large framing house located in Chicago. I am not sure when or if they closed operation, but you may want to check with www.winternitz.com  . Winternitz is an industrial auctioneer that list's Vilas-Mages Co. as a client within the Chicago "woodworking" industry. This leads me to believe that Vilas-Mages was only the company that framed the works people possess, and did not actually produce the artwork housed within their frames. I cannot find any information that they produced or sold artwork or prints of any kind. I own two Japanese woodblock prints that are housed in frames with the Vilas-Mage sticker that is hand numbered (order number, same on both prints), but both also have a foil sticker from a Muskegon Michigan art & framing gallery which closed in the 1940's. It seems that small town art dealers sent prints & drawings to Vilas-Mages for special order framing.
Hope this information helps you as it has me, and please email me if you find more info. Sincerely, Mark Kirby

Print signed by G. Marogic or G. Maragic (02/17/2009)

I just had a print re-framed. when I took the backing paper off the frame at the framers, i noticed a label on the back of the porint reading:Vilas Mages Co. Chicago. "Golde Haze" #2709-2327. It is a copy of a print signed by G. Marogic or G. Maragic and shows a woman in Dutch garb in a field with a windmill in the near distance. It catches the sunlight in an interesting way in our kitchen where we get the sunnset on our southern wall. The framer said it was probably one of a series of copies by a company that made them for what he called "furniture store art." C. Woodward

The Music Room (02/04/2005)

My deceased Aunt passed down a painting titled "The Music Room", which is of a beautiful blond woman playing a harpsichord. There is a harp behind the harpsichord as well as a wall tapestry. The painting is 34 1/2" wide and 30" high with original frame. On the back of the frame at the top is a sticker with Vilas Mages Co., 2914-15 and the name of the piece, "The Music Room". In the upper left hand of the painting is MARGUERITE S PEARSON. I'm sure this is not an original oil as the composition is flat but made to look like oil. It is not on canvas but on some type of board.
Can you help with some information? Is it worth keeping ? It has to be at least 40 years old, i would guess. Thank you for your help.

When my grandmother was dying I inherited the two pictures. The pictures are aproximately 6"x4" in size framed in their original framework in an approximate 10"x8", light in color wood frame with a 1 1/2" matting around the pictures. The inner part of the matting has a gold painted line to accent the pictures. The two pictures have a small vace filled with flowers (both different). There is also a signature on one that I think reads H. or Stultz or H. Steelz. It is hard to determine. The backing on the pictures were sealed in a very fine paper that was most likely glued onto the wood frame. The fine paper is severly torn on the back but sides are still connected to the wood frame. What generated my reason to contact you is also on the back of the frame is a sticker with Vilas-Mages Co. Chicao on it with an identity number on it: One is 2679-N-2061 and on the other picutre it reads 2679-N-2196.
My question is are these very deligate pictures of any value? And if so, where could I go in Portland Oregon who could appraise them for me?
I appreciate your assistance. Glenda Crume

In New England (01/07/2005)

I have a painting that my mothre purchased at an auction in the 1940s.
The label on the back reads Vilas-Mages Co. Chicago. Numbers below the company name are 2 - 9 - 80 - 251, Also written is "In New England". The picture is 24" by 36". It has Vilas-Mages Co. Chicago on the back label with the numbers 2-9-80 - 251. This painting was purchased at an auction by my mother in the late 1940s.  The background is trees, with a woman standing in a boat rowing, while a man seems to be working with a netting from the boat to the water. The picture is in an old style gold frame. I cannot find any sign of an artist name.I hope you can help me with any information on who the artist is, the name of the canvas and date when it may have been painted.
You can reach me at E-Mail . Would appreciate any information you can find. Thanks! M. Gephart

Christ in Gethsemne (07/01/2004)

Good Morning: In searching the internet for some information about some art work, we found your email address. I am hoping you might be able to help me.
I have been given a piece of art work that had been owned by my grandparents. They were both born in the 1890's and lived in the Milwaukee, WI area all their lives. We do not know when or where they purchased this piece. It is "Christ in Gethsemne" (This is the exact spelling on the back of the framing.) "2709-A-2617" "Vilas-mages Chicago" is also noted on the back of the framing. I have not removed the art work from the frame as it is in excellent shape and I did not want to destroy any part of it.
I am just looking for any information you might have about this: artist, age of the work, possible value,.... I appreciate any thing you might be able to share with me. Sincerely, Carol M. Eaton
