4 wonderful watercolor and gouache paintings. The flower painting is signed lower right. The three landscapes are unsigned which was very common for Giles. All are framed by Stephen Murphy Framers, London and are stamped the same on verso. Also all are fitted, mounted and backed with non acidic conservation board and tape.
All are beautifully framed and ready to hang and in excellent condition.
These are extremely rare pieces as her work rarely comes available.
