Distinguishing Characteristics - Most Interesting About The Piece: This is a nice piece of a modern folk art hand painted by an accomplished folk artist. It would make a nice decorative piece or a great addition to your collection.
Condition: The piece is in very good condition with no losses and the frame is in very good condition. The backing is in very good condition. However, we believe it is a new replacement and not original to the piece. The one thing we see is some brown paint on the glass, suggesting the frame may have been painted while in place. However, this is minimal, difficult to see, and can be cleaned if you so desire. The drawing is well done with no damage or losses. The frame has a few minor scratches and several small and minor nicks but these issues do not distract from its beauty or quality. The backing is intact and clean with no damage. The piece is clean and ready to hang on your wall. Please review the photos for additional condition information.
