Fabulously Framed Antique Watercolor by "E.Welby" (22"W x 2"D x 22"H) 

Ellen Welby was a famously independant woman of her age. Born in Canterbury England in 1851, she defied cultural norms by not marrying and cultivating her own artistic pursuits. Known as a painter, embroiderer, and illustrator, Ellen's depictions of children were especially popular as greeting cards at the turn of the 20th century. Sitting in what is quite likely it's original framing and matting, this presumed portrait evokes such life when viewed in person. We suspect this piece to be circa 1910-20, but could be a little earlier.
