Romantic Victorian Lady Print in Rare Penwork Frame
Unmistakably Pre-Raphaelite, this antique print features one of those wistful beauties of the 19th century. It's a really beautiful piece, reproducing Marie Spartali Stillman's painting, "Cloister Lilies." I expect the print is somewhat larger than what we see, since the original has a book below the pink beads and has somewhat wider margins all around. You may want to re-mat it in order to show more.

The current mat is hand-lined and the frame also is hand-deocrated with penwork (a popular Victorian pastime)to present the illusion of a very fine-grained exotic wood. A modern claw for hanging is attached to the frame's leatherette backing, from which an easel mount formerly attached by old cloth tape was evidently removed. Framed measurements are about 10 3/4" x 12 3/4".

Sorry about the glare from the glass; it was too bright a day when we were photographing. Please e-mail if you'd like to see additional pictures. Thanks for looking!
