I haven`t been so excited since............
Just before Christmas I bought a sweet couple of signed miniature portraits in their frames. One frame damaged and one intact and I stashed them away for listing.
On Sunday evening we were watching the Antiques Roadshow when someone had a very similar pair of miniatures valued. The expert said that they were by the most famous portrait painter of the time "Cosway".
I nipped upstairs to take a look at the pair I had bought and "VOILA!!" they are signed COSWAY.
Well I haven`t been so excited since at the age of 14 in the girl guides when we were off on a camping weekend and I got on the boy scouts coach by mistake!!!!
But then I looked closer....they are prints and not hand painted. HUH!
Oh well.......c`est la vie.....I still adore them!
a la prochaine mes belles
