Marvelous & rare antique early 1800s Georgian to Victorian era Flemish or Dutch hand painted miniature oil painting on board, a seated hunter figure with rifle & powder horn, hunting dog or hound at the ready and beautifully displayed in the original ebony & inlay 5 3/4” Flemish frame! Isn’t this one as charming as can be! The frame original and just 5 3/4” x 5” and the painting is 3 3/4” x 3”. Deep, rich colors, the hunter and dog both seated in a dark forest surrounding. Perfect for the miniatures collector or even doll collectors, this one would be a fabulous accent to a finely appointed doll and furniture display! Don’t miss it!
Very good condition. The frame is in great shape, no missing curved inlay in the mat and no real damage to the ebonized portion (though possibly a small nick or two. There are a few marks to the painting near the stump or rock that the hunter is seated on, I can’t tell what they are from but they don’t take away from the overall scene. Also a bit of scratching to the paint at the bottom where it meets the frame, possibly that the painting is just not seated right in the frame. No artist’s signature that I can see. A marvelous early 1800s piece!
