A very nice circa 1900 primitive painting! Subject matter of Bible & Flowers create one dramatic effect. Darker base background coloring with rich yellow, red, gold, and green floral / foilage deepened with the natural patina of older varnish / laquer. It still maintains higher gloss finish; and / or someone recoated a long time ago. It measures approx. 9.5"h x 11.5"w in frame. Frame thickness is approx. .75"w. Frame is period to painting and has old gold paint on frontal portion. Painting is on some type of either canvas board / paper board pressed against a period thinner wood board. Painting is not signed as far as I can tell. Condition is very good overall There is some fine crazing do to old paint and varnish. There are two paper line tears on lower painting that have been filled in with varnish and dryed... repair like. See photos. These do not detract and you can tell by pictures!!! Nice piece of americana. I stand behind all items and their descriptions. Returns are for items not as described. NY State residents add 8.75% sales tax. I ship USPS Priority mail / Tracking. Thank you for your viewing consideration.
