For sale is a wonderful antique 19th century American folk art watercolor painting of a yellow bird on a branch that I acquired from a sale in Ohio. The bird has black wings, and is signed "Arivilla Brisbee". The painting has been placed on an off white background, and is housed in a gold gilt frame. The framed piece measures about 11 1/4" x 9 1/4" with sight measurements of 9 1/2" x 7 1/2". The image itself is about 7 1/2" x 6", and the bird itself is about 5" long. The painting is in nice antique condition, with a few light stains, a few creases, and one well repaired tear near the bottom of the trunk, that at least in my opinion, doesn't affect the charm and presence of this wonderful piece. In addition, it should be noted that it was removed from the frame for examination, and acid free backing was added. The frame shows minor appropriate wear, but no really significant issues. Please look carefully at the pictures as they are an important part of the description, and be sure to ask any questions. What a charming addition to your cottage primitive garden decor!
