Description

Size Frame 35 x 41 cm (14 x 16 inches approx)

Condition: Generally good antique condition, colours fresh. The silk background in the sky area has a small split and a small hole. The verre eglomisée mount is good and the frame also good with an antique patina and a few small scuffs.

A delightfuland very competent silkwork picture with plenty of interest, showing a shepherd and his lass in a mountainous scene, the shepherd sitting on a tree stump playing an oboe (there is a reed in his mouth), and the shepherdess holding a staff, with four sheep at her feet. The faces and hair of the two characters, and the sky, are painted onto the silk background.

The verre eglomisée mount and frame are in Reency style but I think they are late 19th or early 20th century, as is consistent with the framer/dealer's label for Ernest Alden, KIng's Road, Chelsea on the back.

Please note that the main photo gives the best indication of overall colour - the camera tends to pick up blues closer up.
