Exquisite old violets watercolor in its original gold frame, mat, and glass. The watercolor is done with great skill, and the colors are beautiful. It is artist signed S. H. Butts, and it is from the early 1900's. The label on the back shows the artist's information from Rochester, NY, and the agent's information. It is exceptionally painted. The dimensions of actual watercolor are 12 by 6-7/8 inches, and framed dimensions are 21 by 15-1/2 inches. Condition of painting and mat is excellent; the frame has missing pieces and gesso as you can see in the pictures. The areas with missing gesso can be regilded, if you wish. The plastic bag attached to hanger contains gesso pieces from the frame. The imperfect state of the frame adds an old world charm to the painting. Painting has its original wood backing, and I have not taken it apart.
