A charming mid-19th-century country house portrait of a distinguished gentleman. He’s sitting beside a table with a book, quill and inkwell. Intriguingly, under the table, there’s a small opened letter with a wax seal. Is this a clue regarding the gentleman’s identity or activities?

The portrait was previously hanging in a New Forest country house and it’s held within a fine maple frame.

Overall size: 27” x 31” / 69cm x 79cm
Year of creation: c. 1840
Provenance: England
Condition: Craquelure. Overall very presentable. Frame with some light age-related wear.
