19th century German oil on canvas genre-painting of a family celebration. It appears the young girl is watching as her grandpa opens a present. The family dog also is curious as he opens the box. Other family members are shown in the background and join in the excitement. Charming scene of everyday life. The painting is very detailed and expertly done and is signed on the edge of the canvas with the initials "D G III" (see photo). It is housed in a lovely gold gilt frame with applied appliques to three borders. Both the painting and frame are in excellent antique condition. The painting measures 12.75" high by 10.5" wide. Frame measures 20" by 17.75".
There is a companion painting which is listed separately and shown n the last photo. Item number 01461
