This fine water color and ink silhouette is depicting an early American room setting. The two subjects, most likely husband and wife, are are done in ink. Each with great detail. The gentleman is wearing glasses, holding a quill pen and appears to be writing something on a lap-top desk. The woman is standing, holding her glasses and overseeing him. The watercolor background shows a portrait and a pair of sconces on the wall, a Windsor chair, and a drop leaf table with a candlestick, all on an area rug or floor cloth. Executed on heavy stock. Housed in a wood frame. Minor imperfections consistant with age. Late 19th C. Measuring 18-1/" by 15" framed.
