Naive Folk Art Watercolor Painting Pair English Rural And Coastal Scene Circa 1840
This decorative pair of English naïve watercolors date to circa 1840. One of the watercourses features a coastal scene with fishing nets drying and a smoke house; the remaining watercolor features a rural scene of a welcoming public house/ inn. Both watercolors are housed under original old glass with gilt slip and within attractive Georgian stained softwood frames. They will look splendid displayed in your cottage or cabin.
Measuring: Frame 8” (20.5 cm) by 6.25” (16 cm). Watercolor 5.5” (14 cm) by 4” (10 cm).
Condition: Both watercourses are in good condition. There is small 0.5” (1.5 cm) slight tear to the paper at 1 o clock to the pub watercolor. The frames are in good condition with some minor bumping and wonderful natural patina to the original stained softwood frames. One of the suspension hangars is original; the other is a gorgeous hand forged mid-19th century replacement.
These genuine examples are just perfect additions to a discerning folk art collection.
