This is a pair of beautiful antique French oil on canvas paintings signed by D. Ridard. Each depicts a still life setting of fruit and flowers.
The paintings are in very good condition. There is craquelure as would be expected of oil paintings of this age. One painting has a blemish about 1.25” long and less than 0.25” wide where the paint has chipped off of the canvas, and the canvas is visible, although the canvas color is fairly dark making the blemish less noticeable. The other painting has a strip of slight fading in the upper left-hand corner that is roughly 0.5” wide and 14” long, although the fading looks like it could have been intended. See the pictures for both the blemish and the faded strip.
The frames are beautiful with intricate detail of significant depth and heft. The 3-dimensional nature of the frame design is brought to life with the two holes designed into each corner and the center of each side. The frames are a beautiful golden color. The frames are in good condition although there are noticeable chips in the plaster on 3 corners of one frame and on 2 corners of the other frame. See the pictures to understand the nature of this chipping.
The pieces are each 29.25” wide x 22.75” tall x 3.5” deep. The canvases within the frames are 22.5” wide x 15.25” tall. The pieces are ready to hang and have been displayed beautifully in our family’s home for decades.
Shipping for the pair will be $100 total via UPS Ground anywhere in the 48 contiguous US states. Alternatively, the buyer may pick up the pieces at our location in Dallas, Texas, at no charge.
