Here is a wonderful early pair of prints in original frames from Cecil Aldin’s famous ‘Fallowfield Hunt” series of paintings. Prints from this series first appeared in 1899, and these two prints came right off the walls of an estate in Hiram, Maine. I literally took them right off the wall! They are titled on the frame with brass plaques “The Breakfast” (at the Three Pigeons) and “The Supper” (The Hunt Supper). Aldin was a British artist and illustrator (1870-1935) who was famous for his hunting scenes and dog portraits. These two prints are probably the most famous in the six part Fallowfield Hunt series. Buffalo Pottery also produced “The Fallowfield Hunt“ in their pottery dated on the bottom 1908 and 1909. This also tells just how popular Aldin’s work was in this country as well as in England. The frames show their age as well they should after over 100 years, but lend authenticity as to when they were made. They measure 12.5“ by 8.25” with the print inside as measured from the back, 10” by 6”. The glass also appears to be original to the prints. The prints are in excellent condition with no stains nor foxing (pardon the pun!) They are a wonderful early set of Aldin’s ‘Fallowfield Hunt” prints in matching frames, a great addition to your fox hunting sport scenes in Aldin’s humerous rendition for which he was famous!
