Item:192276747411Up for sale is a stunning pair of folk art portraits in their original and highly decorative arts and craft period frames. These two portraits are executed by hand using pastel and watercolor and pencil. The quality of the frames is rarely seen especially with the red felt inner border. Both portraits are in their original state with everything from the frames, glass and even the hand painted gold matting! The condition of the paintings are very good! The inside of the glass is dirty and needs a good cleaning the compositions seem to be in fine untouched condition. Some areas the color has slightly faded exposing darker flesh tones like in the woman's white collar and the mans white shirt thats slightly exposed. The whitening of the faces is NOT due to molding! Their might be some slight foxing but the white color seems to be strictly age related with the color slightly changing over the course of the last 150 years. These two piece are of equivalent size with the frames measuring 22.5 x 24.5 inches while the paintings measure 9.5 x 11.5 inches. Rarely do you see two early to mid 19th century folk art portraits as these especially in their original frames and matting in such good condition. Their is a slight loss to the mans frame on the bottom right. Frames do show slight cosmetic wear and dirtiness from age. With slight knicks around the frames, some slight loss to the red felt interior border, and staining to the matting, is the most notable wear. Neither of the two pieces have been examined outside of the frame. Their is no visible signature within the compositions. Please refer to the photos and ask questions for condition or anything else related to this pair of portraits. Thanks for looking and good luck!
