For sale is a terrific signed "CLG" and dated 1878 watercolor painting of a basket of raspberries and waterlilies. I bought it from a seller in New Hampshire. It is wonderfully executed, and the initials and date are very tiny, located in the lower right corner. In fact, the information is written so small that I was unable to photograph it adequately. The painting is housed in its original gold frame with the original wavy glass. It measures about 13" tall, 15 1/2" wide, and 2" deep, and is is in very nice antique condition, with no real flaws on the painting or the glass. The frame does have some minor expected wear, and at some point, someone added a bit of gold paint to try to disguise the paint chipping. Please look carefully at the pictures as they are an important part of the description, and be sure to ask any questions. What a charming addition to your Victorian cottage garden decor!
