Product Description

A beautiful, large oil painting…

Dating to the earlier part of the 20th century, circa 1930’s, this is wonderful hand painted depiction of an ’18th century street scene’ in London. We understand from the previous owner that this piece was recently reclaimed from a stately home in Hertfordshire, where it had been on the wall for over 80 years. It’s an absolute stunner and a statement piece at that!

Painted on a wooden board in what we think are oils, this piece is beautifully done. It’s quite a dramatic piece, and gruesome in places too. We love the pawn brokers sign, and of course the detailing to the variety of acts and events that are occurring in the background. We think this would look stunning mounted on a wall of one’s home. The attention to detail is brilliant, and the colours are vibrant…

There’s a few small tatty areas to the painting and the frame which shows its authenticity, but other than that, it’s a fine original piece capturing a piece of history in the United Kingdom…

We are offering this piece in ‘as found’ condition, therefore there is some natural wear and tear. There are some surface scuffs and abrasions across the painting, along with some paint chipping and tatty areas. That said, in general it’s in very nice original condition, and oozes charm and authenticity. The frame has a few chips and losses, yet we feel they are not detrimental to the overall structure or look and feel. Lastly, the board is held in place as expected, but the reverse is a little tatty as pictured. Please do study the photos to help with your analysis as it would be hard to highlight all imperfections…
