Vibrant watercolor theorem on paper, framed in an exceptional period gilded frame. Inscription cut out and glued to the brown frame backing paper says "Agnes Carpenter 1864 Presented by Mrs ___ Gardiner. Little Mountain Ohio". This one will capture the sight of everyone in the room. Sight size 11 1/4" X 14 1/2". Overall framed size 15 1/2" X 18 1/2". Expected toning to the paper and dings around the edges of the frame. I was unable to avoid having some glass reflection in a couple of the photos. The reflection is clearly pointed out on the individual pics.
