This is a 22 3/4" by 18 3/4" (30" by 26" as framed) charcoal on paper vintage antique portrait of your distant ancestor who looked like Lincoln. If you run an antique bed and breakfast hotel, this piece of the 19th century would fit right in with you Victoriana theme. The second photo is most accurate, showing the horizontal line in the middle where the two old acidic boards in the back once met. Note from the reverse how the knot in the woodd also left its mark. However from the front only the horizontal band is visible, and that is even acceptable considering the age. Frame has potential but is missing some elements along the right side. Allow for reflections in the glass. Email me if you'd like more photos. SEE HUNDREDS OF OTHER PAINTINGS/PRINTS IN MY SHOP.
