This delightful scene shows Dutch women engaged in preparation of food, in what must be a dining room. The water colors are still very vivid, however the reflection on the glass tends to cloud the true colors. The main themes of Dutch interior paintings, prevailing since the 17th c., are those of love and the virtues of domestic life focusing on the female figure...

Exceptional hand coloring on this brilliant copper engraving by Pierre-Quentin Chedel, a noted French engraver of architecture, landscape and views. I believe it is from Prevost's , Histoire Generale des Voyages, a most influential travel book in mid 1700. Titled Nouveau Mexico, it is of a bird's eye view of Mexico City, after the Spanish Conquest, showing the results of Spanish drainage and waterworks projects...

As a painter with a passion for cooking also myself, I was charmed by this very yummy composition, most likely by a talented "Sunday Painter". It is American oil on canvas board and seems to be in a very good original frame with few nicks, and old worm holes on the bottom of the frame. Signed right bottom. @0" X 16"framed, approx. 16 X 11. I'm guessing at the age...1930-1950. I have it hanging in my dining room and trying not to get too attached!

Golfing Rule XIV and XXXI,in English and French by Charles Crombie, one of the leading cartoonists of early 1900 who cartooned the rules of golf in a series. Each print, about the rules of the game has a pun to the rule. The original coloring in these 2 prints is very good. Framed in later, most appropriate frames, with some expected wear, now have the addition of nonglare glass. Copywright of Perrier French Natural Sparkling Table Water. Circa 1905...

Signed FT Sewell 1904, this pair of Cornish Indians with hand painted colors is wonderful! They seem to have been from a poultry or bird book,with some description on the reverse side. Exotic poultry is always quite desirable, and this pair shows handsomely in their vintage frames with hanging rings on top. The mats appear to be amatuer. I just discovered some fun information about these rare birds but want to make sure it's true!

Once again, silhouettes have become quite collectible, and this is has a most desirable subject matter The detail in this signed E.V.Maydell and dated 1921 work is most incredible. It is black paper on ecru paper.There is some lifting of the silhouette,and the only breaks I note are at the top of the foot pedal cords,none of which detract at all. It seems to be framed in the age worn, but original black frame. There is no glass, and I leave that to the collector to do as preferred...
