This listing is for a fine 19th century American School still life of fruit, oil on canvas. Unsigned. Beautiful quality circa 1860-1880 still life of fruit including grapes, peaches and wine. Painted with details and the arrangement illuminated by a light source from the left showing the range of colors of the fruits and the wine glass. Unquestionably painted by an established still life artist showing the fullness of the grapes.
Very good condition some small marks but great for its age. There is a small surface scratch (see photo with red arrow). As with all oil paintings of this age, it could use a cleaning to further brighten the colors.
It is in its original gold gilded frame. The frame is quite sturdy and in wonderful condition. There is some wear to the gilding. Painting is ready to hang.
The frame measures 17" x 15". It is 1 5/8" deep.
This is the first time this item is being offered for sale. It came from an old country farm house in north east Connecticut. You could see the mark on the wall after it was taken down, showing how long it had hung in that same spot.
This is the kind of painting that Currier and Ives copied for their prints so that every could afford to have one in their home.
