A charming cut pair silhouette of the Reverend John Foster M A (1780-1866) born in Ryhall, Rutland and Rector of Wickersley, Yorkshire, England . In the matching frame we see is a cut silhouette of his pretty young daughter Emma Foster (1820 - 1888). Her silhouette is named and dated to the rear under the paper Emma Foster 1846, indicating that Emma was 26 years for the sitting of this portrait - this would appear correct as she seems to be a young lady. Housed in matching hand crafted rosewood frames and under old bubbled glass complete with their original top suspension loops. These really are a delightful father and daughter pair and it is so lovely to be able to put names to faces.
Size: Frame 5.75" (14.5 cm( by 4.25" (10.5 cm), sight just under 4" (10 cm) by 2.5" (6.5 cm).
Condition: Sadly both have a very old diagonal water stain mark to their bottom half from damp old English walls; however, less noticeable than our studio lights convey. There is some slight blooming/ misty clouding to John. There is evidence of filler to the bottom left corner join of Emma's frame.
This is fine opportunity to own a delightful pair of 19th century silhouettes. They will make the perfect house guests.
