A wonderful folk art diorama with handpainted watercolor background of a harbor scene, with a working woman in the foreground with two cats shucking oysters on the dock. The diorama uses cloth and textiles for the dress, hat, and towel, as well as paper painted figures of the woman and cat to create the three dimensional effect. The diorama is monogrammed E.M.M. center right, mounted under glass with a rope lining, and housed in a simple molded wooden frame, with some small losses. A great framed piece of folk art, probably dates to the late 19th or early 20th century. Dimensions: 15 ½” h x 11 ¾” w, actual; 18 ¾” h x 15” w, framed.
