A great piece of late 19th century Schoolgirl Folk Art Whimsy: a small, frame paper, signed Amanda Ett(a?) Owen, featuring 13 animals and birds, a nut, a kite and a rake and an axe (interesting collection of creatures and things, you must admit). These are neat and tidy individual sketches and I wouldn’t be surprised if she traced some of them from a book. She – or someone -- helpfully labeled them (never would have figured out the nut or the kite!). The little piece is framed and measures 4 ½” x 7 ½” (sight; frame size is 5 ½” x 8 ½”). Fine condition with only what looks like a water (or coffee!) stain in the lower right corner that does not affect any of the drawing and some scattered very light soiling..
