I love this Victorian Framed Water Color of a Young Child, Circa 1860s. This era was known as the High Victorian Era, I’m honestly not positive if this is a boy or a girl. I suspect it is a boy. The face, lips and especially the eyes are beautifully done. The child has on a small lace collar with a gold pin above the buttons. The frame is without a doubt one of the nicest Victorian Gilt frames I have ever owned. It is multi layered and has many textures. The outermost border is half dome balls all the way around. The main portion of the frame is a floral and vine display. There is a Victorian Red Velvet liner then a stunning tree bark textural fillet. I have taken this piece apart to clean the glass and check for signatures. There were so many itinerant artist who traveled from town to town here in New England. Some of these artists are very famous. Most were just artists making a living.

DIMENSIONS: Frame - 17 3/8” X 15 ¼” Painting – 10” X 8”

CONDITION: Both the frame and the painting are in very nice vintage condition. There is an area of darkness on the right upper side of the frame. It has been there for a long time. I have not tried to clean it or re-do the gold. I have comfortably lived with it this way for a long time.
