This piece is a very rare original framed double etchings of Mermaids- Top etching is a beautiful Mermaid holding a pelican bird. Under the top etching, in the artists hand is inscribed "Bird in the Hand" and signed 'Mayhew'. The second etching framed below is another Mermaid with flowing hair- within her hair are two Pelican birds. Underneath this etching, in the artists hand is inscribed "Two in the Bush" and signed "Mayhew". Both etchings are in recessed in relief- the top one measures approx.6.5" x 3" and the bottom etching measures approx. 7" x 4". With the frame and matting the total size of both framed etchings is 19.5" high and 8.5" width. This was professionally framed under glass by "Hall Galleries & Framers" as indicated on the back. Included on the back is the original Artist Bio. and history.
This piece is quite rare because James "JD" Mayhew is famously known for his etchings of Sea Life; Whales, etc. This is a rare interpretation of Mermaids which includes the artists hand inscribed titles as well as his signatures. It is clearly based on the saying "A Bird in the Hand is Worth Two in the Bush" as the first Mermaid is holding one bird, and the second Mermaid has two birds caught within her flowing hair. I have seen many pieces by JD Mayhew and have only seen one other Mermaid themed piece. He was clearly in a playful mood when he drew these two beauties!
