Description:
This is a fine example of a 19th c. Chinese Export Reverse Painting On Glass. The subject matter is a highly desirable European theme and although the young lovers are dressed in 18th c. attire, I believe that this painting dates to the second half of the 19th c. The Victorian symbolic elements of the basket of eggs and the basket of doves, with the eggs symbolizing new beginnings, the spark of creation and fertility and  the doves sybolizing love and fidelity. The glass panel is in excellent condition with a few very minor scratches to the reverse painting. The rosewood frame is also in good condition with slight shrinkage to the back panels which is a good indication of age. These young lovers appear to be very devoted to each other-- the painting would add depth to many country designed rooms--English, Franch or American themed.  Please contact me using the link at bottom left for additional photos, information and trade/retail pricing. Thanks for visiting--all inquiries are welcome.
