Small Antique 19thc Folk Art Floral Oil Painting In Eastlake Ebonized Wood Frame:
Up for offer is one antique, oil on tin floral still life portrait painting housed in a victorian eastlake ebonized wood frame.
Frame measures 7-1/2" by 5-3/4." Actual sight size measures 5-5/8" by 3-15/16." Flowers look like Dogwood blossoms. Painted on tin. Inner frame rails are gold gilt, outer rails are oak toned, incised ebonized wood. On the cardboard backing is written as follows: "Painted by Jennie Simpson-Jennie Mattison Simpson-sometime in the 1870's Her first picture." Cannot elaborate any further on the history.
Condition of both painting and frame is very good to excellent.No fading or damage to painting. Original wavy glass is intact, frame has had one nail added at side for corner re-inforcement-does not detract. Shows no damage or blemishes, just wonderful age patination. Painting shows pretty good quality from what I would assume was an amatuer painter. Ready to hang.
