Lovely pair of miniature views of Venice one depicting the Campanile di San Marco (St Mark's Bell Tower) and the Doge's Palace (Palazzo Ducale) and the other the Rialto Bridge with gondolas in the foreground. They are colored with an opaque paint, most likely gouache or tempera, in typical Italian colors of terracotta and a warm pale blue sky that reflects on the water. Under magnification the details of buildings appear to be painted lithographs. Most likely antique Venice Grand Tour souvenirs. They come ready to display in lovely antique maple wood frames. In very good used condition with small scratches and imperfections as shown. Shipped fully insured with tracking number.
Measurements: Frames: 13 1/4" by 11 1/4"; Sight: 6 1/4" by 4 1/2" approximately.
