Fine pair of English antique silkwork pictures dated 1797

A charming and fine pair of Georgian needlework pictures of children playing.
In one picture a boy is attempting to capture a butterfly. In the other picture a girl is playfully tickling the nose of a sleeping boy, exhausted after
playing at ‘hoop rolling’.

Note: one frame is very slightly larger than its pair.
Both are in near perfect condition retaining their original vibrant colours; rare for silkwork pictures some 200 years old.
Apparently in their original frames and mounts. One bearing the inscription: “Innocent Mischief – From the picture by Richard Westall, R.A., engraved by C. Josi”.
