Peace by William Strutt

Peace by William Strutt

Dave & I went to this auction on Saturday -- and there sitting on a table waiting to be sold was this sweet little lithograph from the 1890's called "Peace".  I sat down and calmly shared that I would indeed be walking out with that sweetie in my hands.  The bidding was fierce, I set my jaw & didn't back down ---- Dave froze in shock!  Needless to say, it has come home to live at Meadowview Farm.  P.S. I still wish I could have captured the look on Dave's face as we bid & bid - that was priceless!!

Meadowview_Farm writes: Sue - yes, that look of "what is happening here?" is a universal look! Poor Dave - he knew this was beyond his control.
Candy - the frame is sweet - a few worn spots, but that just leads to the authenticity.
Snowmanhill - I know, isn't it wonderful. It has found a special & protected place in a step back cupboard in my living room.

Take care,

Usually I set my high end price based on keeping the item or selling the item. And then the bidding fun begins. Posted: 10:19 am on December 15th
