These wonderful examples of antique portraits were originally photos that were enhanced by watercolor painting over the top of the features of the photos. Thank goodness this was a common practice, as it has preserved these amazing and nostalgic pieces of history, since the photo part has long since faded away. We speculate that this was a couple, as the name "Sibley" is written on both photos. Although the number 1900 is written on the backs of the photos, our sense is that they hail from the mid-1800s.

Condition: Wear consistent with age and use, Original finish, Please see photos. Photos are representative of the most noticeable blemishes and do not constitute a complete catalog of every flaw, "Wear and patina are a part of the appeal of this piece. As such, no discounts will be given for flaws" There are some minor stains and tears in the matting of the gentleman's photo. There is a great deal of age related wear to the photos and the frames, please inspect photos carefully and decide if you enjoy the look with the flaws. The pictures of the raw photos differ so much because one was taken in natural light in the shade outdoors, and the other (the gentleman) was taken indoors at night in low lighting.
