Flower Offering

Circa 1780


This cut and lightly bronzed silhouette shows a young girl in tiny heeled shoes and a tiered dress offering her viewer some flowers from her basket.

Complete with a watercolour wash backdrop, the silhouette is set in a period bird’s eye maple veneer frame with a gilt slip. The veneer has some small old losses.

A charming piece.
