Cats at Lambeth on the Thames folk art

 

Wonderful mid-19th century folk art collage, hand painted in watercolours, of three playful street cats perched upon the roof tops with a birds-eye view of the Thames and Lambeth Palace.  With wonderful detail of river life.

 

The foreground of the picture is hand painted and skilfully constructed to create a 3D effect, the background, a hand coloured etching of the Thames and Lambeth Palace.

 

Excellent condition.

 

In a moulded maple veneer frame with gilt slip.

 

Sight:      14. ½ "  x  12”   (37 cm x 30cm)
