A Privy chamber was the private apartment of a royal residence in England. The gentlemen of the Privy chamber were servants to the Crown who would wait and attend on the King and Queen at court during their various activities, functions and entertainments. (Thought the expression might perplex some viewers... laughing!)
This was hung in Mr. Hagman's house before he died. He had a nice selection, somewhat eclectic, of artwork. I purchased quite a few paintings and other items that I will continue to list. I have hung it just the way it is. Although it certainly shows its age, the frame's colors are so perfect for the work, and the amount of wear is not unusual.
Size: 14" by 18" sight. Framed 19 1/2" by 23 1/2".
Marks: "Stephanoff Pinxit H Mayer Sculptsit A Gentleman of his Majesty's Privy Chamber 19th July, 1821 London Published As The Act Directs March, 1826 by Sir George Naylor Garter"
Condition: The colors are very good. The paper has yellowed with age, and has a spot left middle and small spot middle bottom. (We have not examined this out of the frame.) The frame is wood and a velvet-like fabric. It has non-glare glass. It shows wear. The overall condition is as you would expect from an object of substantial age that has been displayed/handled/used, usually over the lifetimes of several owners. Please note that the physical colours of this item may vary from the pictures in the listing, given the quality of the camera, the lighting and the background used.
