Item Code: 1043-186

Interesting image shows two women seated at a table playing chess. The white and black pieces are clearly visible as is the board. Both women wear dark dresses with hoops, white collars and white under sleeves. Both also wear their hair up. One woman is moving her piece while the other looks on in a contemplative pose with her raised hand to her head.

Image has good clarity and contrast.

Oval mat and frame have the usual geometric and scroll decoration.

Union case is in very nice condition with no chips or cracks. At center is a medallion with a raised profile of a bearded man wearing a soft hat titled “THE PATRIARCH.” The medallion is surrounded by a raised scroll and floral decoration.  [ad]
