A beautiful pencil drawing of human hands, likely 19th century, measuring 4 1/2" by 5 1/2" inside the ornate French mat, 10 1/4" by 11 1/4" as framed in gilt closed corner framing. There is a little wear in the corners of the frame but the overall look with mat and frame is upscale. I very carefully opened the backing (with its English "Stephanie Hoppen" circular label and 150 British Pounds original price in ink), and found no further information inside or on the reverse, as to authorship, though there are two further simple studies on the reverse side. The sheet of paper turns out to be of an irregular shape, as shown. It is wove style paper rather than laid, suggesting a nineteenth century age.
