Fine 19th C. Silhouette
This lovely piece depicts a child holding a doll, approaching her mother who, with pointed finger, is instructing her. This silhouette is a cut and paste on a sepia watercolor background, with hand painted gold embellishments on the figures. A lovely silhouette! Housed in the original figured maple veneered frame (a few losses to veneer). Measuring 8 1/2" wide by 10" tall (with frame). There is a worn label on the reverse with names, but I have been unable to make all of it out, But what I can read says, "Cluny ________ " & "Tapestry" & "______ _______" & "Bettie Wesley".
