An Outstanding Boston ,mass,american Primitive Portrait,"hanna Christian" Superb:
An Exceptional ,Outstanding ,Original American Primitive Portrait, In Good Strong Unrestored Condition !!! The Sitter was " Hanna G. Christian " ,And it was Done in Boston ,1811. This information is seen on the side of the Canvas. The Frame is Old but not Original .The Canvas is held in place with Hand Made Nails of the Period. It has a Ding seen on the Woman's right side just above her Ear, If you're fortunate enough to own this ,my recomendation is to not have it restored ,it is far more valuable as it is, in Unrestored Condition. It is in overall amazing condition, for it's age, and is considered to be one of the finest examples of an American Primitive Portrait ,from that time frame. It has an estimated Shop or Show value of between 7,500.00 and 9,780.00. It is in ready to hang condition, and needs nothing. It measures ( Frame Outside) 24" x 28 " ,and the Canvas Portrait is 20" x 24". She has a Superbly Done Lace Neck Lace Trim, and her Hair Comb is second to none. Her Cheeks are Rosy , and she is absolutely Gorgeous !!! I doubt if you'll ever have an opportunity to buy another of this Quality in a Lifetime !!! I'm selling it with a reasonable reserve ,and an equally reasonable " Buy It Now " price. The Buy it Now price will vanish after the Reserve is hit. Insured shipping ,well protected ,in the US only is 48.85. Payment is due in 3 Days.
