Sweet depiction of two rat terrier dogs doing what they do best; ratting, inside what looks like their original gilded wood frame. You can feel their excitement for what's inside that cage! The painting is oil on board.
It has paint wear, and varnish wear and small scuffs to paint, with some paint touch ups. So not perfect new but beautifully old! It is lovely overall just as it is, and once hung those bits don't detract. Possibly signed in the dark paint but uncertain. Known along with Armfield and Frank Cassell for their 19th century terrier dog paintings.Also to the original gold gilded wood frame, there are small chips and scuff wear adding to its age. Because it's medium size, it would make a nice addition to a grouping of dog paintings. 17 " x 9 " unframed and 19 1/4 " x 11 1/4 " framed.
