For your consideration, a charming little watercolor study of a fencepost and wildflowers, dated July 27, 1877, and signed by the artist, the mysterious XZY. Picture 3 shows where the artist wrote in minuscule writing how long it took them to paint the piece, 1 3/4 hours, and the date, July 27th. The frame is in good condition with the only damage being some dings to the bottom left corner, as seen in picture 1. The painting is in great vintage condition, the colors are still vivid and there appears to be minimal yellowing to the paper the watercolor was painted on, so I suspect it was kept in a smoke free home through most of its long life. Picture 1 also shows a faint crease from a prior fold in the paper and also a tiny pin hole at the top of the painting, from it originally being pinned to a wall prior to being framed. The label on the back of the frame is made of heavy foil, back when foil labels were actually made of foil, so I suspect the watercolor was framed in the 1930s or 1940s. The painting inside the matting measures 5.25 x 8.5 inches. The entire framed piece measures 8.25 x 11.25 inches.

All framed artwork under glass is shipped with the glass taped and the entire item wrapped in obscenely copious amounts of bubble wrap.
