Still Life Fruit Painting , American, 19th Century

United States circa 1880s

A very competently painted unsigned little still life oil on canvas in what appears to be its original frame. An apple, bunches of grapes, peaches and three cherries sit on a cutting board or a serpentine top table with a trace of a late evening mountainous landscape at the left. The gilding on the frame is in remarkable good condition for its age.

Price

$600

Condition

Excellent antique condition. The canvas has been lined. It appears the artist changed his mind as there is just a trace of there originally being a bowl with pears. The surface is clean and looks like there are a few small areas of in-painting
