Oil Painting of Venice | Dated 1874-1875 | Titled and Signed

Cloister of San Gregorio
1874-1875
Oil on Canvas
Stretched & Not Framed
By D. Mailland Armstrong
Venice, Italy

Offering a lovely painting of a Venice scene. Painted by a well trained artist, as displayed by technique, composition and colour. The details are finely painted and the use of colours are sharp and brilliant.  It’s a rather old painting with some damage, but still shows many of the details.  I consider it Shabby Chic!  There are no rips to the canvas and the stretcher is strong.  The painting has been lightly cleaned and varnished. The details about the painting are present on the back of the painting, with a title, name of artist and location.  The lettering is likely original to the painting and appear to be written in an old hand.
SOLD
  

The painting will ship by UPS.  Insurance for the full amount of the purchase price will be added to your invoice.  There is a $10 handling fee, which includes proper packaging and a box specifically made for shipping fine art.  Buyer responsible for all shipping and handling fees.
International shipping offered.

Four Handmade Early 19th Century Hitchcock Chairs

Offering a set of four handmade Hitchcock chairs. Circa 1820-1840. They have a nice patina, with an old shellac finish present. The chairs recently received a coat of very fine museum quality English wax. All the joints are very stable and the chairs feel very solid. There are nice details of a skilled craftsman, with carving marks and nicely turned legs.

Most Hitchcock chairs are painted black, but these happened to be finished Yellow Pine & hardwood. Under one of the chairs, there is very faint painted lettering, showing to whom the chairs were made. I haven’t been able to make out the entire name. The chairs came from a farmhouse in Western Massachusetts and were likely made locally, with some parts potentially from the Hitchcock Co.  In 1818, the Hitchcock company started in the business of selling chair parts.

 SOLD

Please be in contact for shipping and handling charges. They could ship UPS, with two chairs to a box. Freight is another option. International shipping can be arranged.

   

Antique Early American Armchair Upholstered in Hessian Cloth

SOLD

Offering a lovely early 20th century armchair in an earlier style. It has been upholstered in natural Hessian Cloth. The chair frame is very solid and displays desirable age and wear to the wood. The finish is original, with a recent fine English wax coating added. There is a very small piece of missing wood on the bottom of the left front leg, which is to be expected of an antique chair. I’m not 100% which type of wood the chair was constructed from. It’s certainly very hard!

The chair has very simple lines and a natural look, which make it versatile. It’s very wide and comfortable. The chair would go brilliantly next to the rustic 1840’s Empire Worktable, which I also have listed.

This item is offered for local collection. It’s also offered for shipment by UPS or freight service. It can be delivered throughout New England and the New York City area.

Please be in contact for shipping and handling charges, which will obviously vary by delivery method.
