1821 Derby Archery Society Archeress Watercolor Miniature in Period Frame

Regular price $215.00

This one I'd be especially glad to keep for myself. I've developed something of a thing for antique images of archeresses, and what a lovely example is this little watercolor, with our young woman with bow and arrow apparently wearing the official uniform of the Derby Archery Society in 1821! A perfect late Valentine, though of course I think its always the right time for one, even better when that one of a 200+ years old beauty. Perfectly housed in a silver gessoed period wood frame.

4 9/16 x 5 4/16 framed. Watercolor is mounted to backing paper (original to it, it appears). Watercolor itself 2 7/8 x 4 1/8. Placed in the period frame by the dealer I purchased it from, with archival mat behind it. All in very good condition.
