FREE SHIPPING ANYWHERE IN THE CONTINENTAL US! This is an exquisite antique portrait. 19th century American school. Oil on canvas. Beautiful woman with white lace bonnet and shawl adorned with pink ribbons. Dark hair and blue eyes, there is a simple elegance about this woman's face. The brass plaque reads "Agnes Reed (Wife), American circa 1830, Artist Unknown". The painting itself measures 34" x 27"" and is displayed in a fine gilt wood antique frame measuring 39 1/2" x 32 1/2".
Condition: Restored: Relined, stabilized craquelure and over-painting throughout. There is also some paint loss at the edges where the canvas meets the frame. The gilt wood frame shows some wear, as you can see in the photos. But this painting is so lovely, it's easy to overlook its imperfections.
Layaways available with 20% down and 3-4 months to pay; possibly longer if arrangements are made in advance.
