This wonderful watercolor depiction of an exotic parrot was painted in the Regency period, circa 1820. The beautiful embossed paper was produced circa 1820 by Dobbs of London who were a British firm of paper embossers, print publishers and ornamental stationers to King George. Dobbs were known for their use of embossed paper/card designs that were used in face screens, mourning cards, writing papers, visiting cards and envelopes. The very talented artist would have visited her local stationers to specifically purchase the embossed card with the intention of painting her subject in the blank central panel.

The watercolor is housed under gorgeous old wavy and bubbled glass in an antique birds eye maple frame. The paper features the embossed 'Dobbs London' mark.

Measuring: Frame width 9 7/8 inch (25 cm) by height 8.5 inch (21.5 cm). Frame depth 0.75 inch (2.5 cm). Aperture width 6 inch (15 cm) by height 4 7/8 inch (12 cm).

Condition: The embossed paper and watercolor are in good condition. There is some minor bumping to the corners of the frame and an old vertical scratch at 6 o'clock, this is not a join mark. There is a small area of touch up to the top of the gilt mount.
