Pair of Characterful Portraits
Early 19th Century
A pair of naive portraits depicting a mature couple: the grey-haired gentleman seated holding his cane and wearing a buff-coloured coat over a red spotted waistcoat and colourful neck-tie, his wife holding her silver spectacles in one hand and cradling a magnificent startled-looking tortoiseshell cat on her lap.
Oil on tin in matching flat profile bird’s eye maple veneer frames with gilt slips.
