Antique English Watercolour Coastal Landscape Monogram And Dated L.B.B Nov 1913 Teignmouth
This poignant pre-World War watercolour scene depicts the picturesque entrance to Teignmouth Harbor, Devon, England looking towards Shaldon Beach. Teignmouth is a small coastal town in the county of Devon, England that has neighboring settlements that date back to Saxon times (7th century). We adore antiques from this period in history, as it was a time of peace and stability before the horrendous onslaught of The Great War when peace was shattered with tremendous loss of life and ultimately the western world was changed forever.
In the foreground we can see a man stood admiring the view and a large sailing ship moored at the harbor entrance. In the background we can see the houses of Marine Parade tucked under the imposing cliffs of Shaldon. The painting is signed “L.B.B” and dated by the artist “Teignmouth Nov /13”. The watercolor is housed within a lemon gilt slip under old wavy glass all within an attractive period oak frame. Measuring: Frame 13” (33 cm) by 11” (28 cm). Watercolour approximately 9” (23 cm) by 7” (18 cm).
Condition: This item is in very good condition with a good, warm patina to the oak frame. The watercolour is crisp and bright, there is some minor foxing to the left side vertical edge and top edge of the paper. There is some minor wear to the edges of the frame to be expected with age. This is a nice quality little watercolor that has good coloring and a high level of detailing. It is an appealing picture to hang on your wall.
