Burnished Copper & Orange Chinese Lanterns Floral Oil Still Life

Product ID: A133


A burst of rich warm vintage floral colour. Stems of  delicate Chinese lanterns, or fruiting Physalis as the gardeners amongst you will know them by their latin name, displayed in a beautiful burnished copper container that complements their warm orange colour. The copper's lustrous gleam  contrasts beautifully with the tactile matt texture of the decorative lanterns. These are set off by a deep grey ground; while in the foreground sheets of scrumpled white paper allude to their delicate tissue paper-like texture. Distinctively graphic, the lanterns have a wonderfully individual appearance that is very appealing. 

Painted in oils on board, the still life is signed by the artist and dated 1968- making it just over 40 years old. 

Size & Condition:

This lovely vintage painting is displayed within its original wood frame and measures approximately 21" (53.5cm) by 15" (38.5cm) . It is in excellent vintage condition for it's age. The original backing paper is still present though not entirely intact. However it does reveal a glimpse of a second painting on the back of the board, of a group of trees-two paintings for the price of one! We have not removed the paper to look at it in its entirety. A discovery for you to find.

Add a burst of warm vintage colour to a corner of your home with this delightfully original vintage gem.
