A wonderful floral theorem on velvet in a period frame with very old, if not original varnish. There are two 1/8" abrasions and one that is pinhead size. All in all, the theorem is in very good condition for its age. On the reverse side is an inscription from a descendant that reads, "This Painting On Velvet" was done by- Charlotte Crane Roberts- About the year 1825. The frame measurements are 12 1/8" wide by 9 5/8" height. The visible part of the theorem measures 9 1/8" wide by 6 5/8" height. Additional photos are attached by the magnifying glass icon.
