Elaborate gilt framed oil painting on wood of a hunter with his Springer Spaniel dogs in the early morning hours. Five Spaniels with the hunter all resting either before or after a hunt. Very wide gilt wood frame with gold gilt filet. Based on the clothing of the gentleman European in origin. I have limited information on its origins but its is really well done. Large and heavy piece.
CONDITION: Excellent antique condition and looks to have been reframed. Noted are a few hairs from the brush in the sky area and a few dings to the darkest part of the frame that have been over-painted and I only noticed them when running my finger over the frame. I not taken it out of its frame and I make no warranties or guarantees as to the authenticity or age of this piece. Please use the zoom feature to inspect this item to make your own determination.
SIZE: Sizes approximate - 22 1/2 inches x 19 inches overall size - visible area of painting is 15 1/2 inches x 12 inches
Andrea, your store is a wonderful treasure trove and your knowledge and class are of a scholarly collector.
I am a university research professor with an eye for detail. I have never seen any vendor with your level of exquisite scholarship. Just like your fine objets d'art, your descriptions are crafted with masterful finesse; it is such a pleasure reading them and it is also a great learning experience. Thanks again! Patrick
From the first time I watched a classic movie as a young girl, and watched Astaire and Rogers float across a dance floor I have loved art deco design, art, fashion and jewelry. So bold and beautiful, and so different from anything that came before it. Art deco changed social and design sensibilities forever. A lifetime collector of high quality antiques and vintage, I started by making contacts, researching and learning. Picking the best of the best, I live with art deco and vintage decor and used to wear the fashions of the day. To say that I feel in love is an understatement. I reveled in the fact that I was able to reflect my unique style and sensibilities with a marriage of old and new. What you see in my shop is my personal collection. Since I was in my teens I have bought what pleases me, what I find beautiful and unique, and the things that speak to me on a creative level. I hope that you can see and feel the passion and love that I feel for antiques and vintage pieces and share with you. You will find art deco, collectible and vintage fine art paintings, original illustrations and magazine covers, home decor, marble, alabaster and metal lamps, nude flapper table lamps, sterling silver decorative accents and tableware for the home and entertaining, designer and estate jewelry and fine vintage watches in my shop.
