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.
