Description

A fine pair of English George III period silkwork pictures, dated 1797.

Charming Georgian (late 18th century) needleworks of children playing. In one scene a boy is attempting to capture a butterfly. In the other a girl is playfully tickling the nose of a sleeping boy, exhausted after ‘hoop rolling’.

Both are in near perfect condition retaining their original vibrant colours – rare for antique silkwork pictures 223 years old.
Apparently in their original frames and mounts. One bearing the inscription: “Innocent Mischief – From the picture by Richard Westall RA, engraved by C. Josi”.
