For sale is a wonderful antique dated 1852 folk art portrait of a seated woman holding her pet dog. It is signed on the back "G. De. Meyer", whom I believe was the painter. There are also the initials "W.C.D" on the back, but it looks like some writing may be missing, and there is a hole in the paper backing. The painting measures about 5 1/4" in diameter, and is in nice, but antique condition, with some minor inpainting on the face, and the previously mentioned hole on the back. In addition, the frame, although old, isn't original, and has minor wear. Please look carefully at the pictures as they are an important part of the description, and be sure to ask any questions. What a nice addition to your primitive decor!
