Hope





When I was at our store one day, a man stopped in to sell me some items from his van. This happens often when you have an antiques store, sometimes this is good but most times these things are not what we are looking for or they are asking entirely too much for us to be able to resell.



This particular day though, I found several items to buy from him and his prices were quite reasonable. But of all the things I have ever bought at the store, this is my favorite. I found out that it is an old print of a painting by George Frederic Watts named "Hope."



Above are the pictures of the painting I found on the internet here. Below is my framed print that I was able to buy that day! Sorry about the reflection of my curtains in the glass. I just love it . . .

That is beautiful! And what a treat it must be for you to have people to come to you with their treasures, in addition to scouting them out yourself! =)

Thank you all so much for your compliments. I found the information just looking at beautiful paintings on the website. The frame was original to the print and is damaged at the bottom but I don't mind, it's just old and looks it. Thank you again, Dawn
