This is a decorative and unusual Victorian artwork, unusual in that the frame features two portrait miniatures. The paintings depict a mother and her son; behind each old glass window we find a detailed little watercolor portrait. The frame and portraits are fine examples of 19th century English folk art.

The frame has not been opened in many, many years; to the backing paper verso, we find an original inscription reading ‘George Davidson Born 1814. George Davidson Junior Born 1870’. A family member has then added in the information about Davidson senior adding that he ‘Died 25th July 1896’.

This is a charming naïve folk art item that will display excellently in any setting. To have the double frame is desirable and quite unusual making this the perfect piece for anyone who loves primitive works.

Please see our collection of 18th and 19th century art and antiques listed separately in our store.
