Figueres Museum Framed Dali Souvenir of "Leda Atomica."

Figueres Museum
Framed Dali Souvenir of "Leda Atomica."

This interesting item recently joined my Dali collection in need of some restoration.  It has since been restored with all original parts.

This is a gold-tone frame with a reproduction of Dali's Leda Atomica (1949) mounted on a clear piece of glass with a gold pinstripe outline.

The reproduction itself appears to be a photomechanical print mounted to a convex piece of wood.  The rear of the wood reveals that it is glued to the glass.  It states:

FUNDACION
GALA - SALVADOR DALI
FIGUERES

The wood's convexity is odd, but appears to give the reproduction a 3-D effect.

I have never seen a collectible/souvenir like this before, and I have no idea when it was produced.  Estimating its value is tricky without additional information, but I tentatively put its value at about $50.
