Again.....we are just not sure if this is Georgian or Victorian. Nice old piece measuring 16" x 7 1/4" The three similar pieces we have listed were all sourced in one lot in Devon, England, just a few weeks ago.
UPDATE: We received a very helpful email from Alden O'Brien who is a Clothing & Fashion Historian.... as follows "The silhouette of the woman
in your oblong silhouette with the horses is completely classic
1840s. Shape and scale of skirt, shape of bonnet--absolutely
positively 1840s. If the deathbed scene oblong one came with the
other, it's probably the same date--harder to tell with the woman putting
her hands up to her face (probably putting her apron up to wipe
her tears), but her skirt looks about the same.
Thanks so much Alden!
