This is a lovely child’s work. We felt it would have more impact than professionally commisioned advertising posters or pages in magazines. Put so simply it says, “Just Do It!”
It has 1659 painted on as a date. If its not an addition then it is the oldest work we have restored and framed. You can see, it has at one time been in an oval surround. A lot of the shining gold decortation on the garment was almost obscured. Cleaning has revealed it. The frame is not so old; about 1900 maybe. And the gold slip is modern.
