Oil on board Currier and Ives style winter landscape viewed from birds eye perspective, 18 1/2" by 24 1/2", 23" by 28 1/4" framed, unsigned, circa 1900, or possibly even earlier, painted in a primitive hand. The painting is charming and a definite folk art piece. Note the glowing windows of the inviting church on this winter day, there are two figures at left that look positively Dickensian, and the sled and figures show good detail. Condition is reasonably good, though not flawless, as would be expected in an antique work over 100 years old. There is a light diagonal scratch in sky and some foxing/soiling especially at upper right. A basic cleaning would work wonders but you would not have to do this to enjoy the old painting. Frame has some losses, as shown.
