Original antique English oil on canvas depicting a classical child hold a bead necklace or rosary. Unsigned. The piece can be dated by the mark of the canvas preparer Charles Roberson (1799-1876) of London whose mark changed frequently over the years and this particular mark was used c1845-1856. The canvas with its original stretchers measures 14" by 12" and is framed out to 19" to 17.25" in a circa 1950s high quality Belgian frame. Condition is good with no tears, holes or canvas repairs. There appears to be some later inpainting in the background and perhaps on the subject's face on the right side. An attractive antique painting that's ready to hang.
