Straw work picture of The Menai Strait ca 1850

19th century English painting with . The painting depicts a wonderful picture of the and the Britannia Bridge in Wales. It is constructed with natural and dyed pieces of straw which has been applied to a watercolor painting. It is identified on the base with an inscription. The framed piece measures 27 x 22.5 inches. There is some loss to some of the straw work and a couple spots of staining. Still a wonderful early piece of English folk art. SOLD
