This is a beautiful piece, the way the painter has painted the roses, its makes them look so soft, almost like you want to touch them! The muted tones of this painting are so gorgeous too. A truly lovely piece. She is an old French piece with ware which is reflected in the price, please note there are some areas where the paint has perished, I have photographed so you can see. For me this is a lovely element of the piece making it show its authenticity is all part of its charm!
