A charming turn of the century folk art depiction of the Bull’s Head pub and village green.

On the reverse, it bears an old auction label from Symons & Son of Barnstaple and it’s intriguing to think that the pub could’ve been in North Devon. We’ve been unable to locate it but hopefully it’s still standing in a village somewhere.

We particularly like the figure of the shepherd as he ambles across the green with his crook.

Good with no issues. Canvas could be easily cleaned to revive its rich colours but we prefer it as it is. Frame with age-related wear.
