Super Goodwill Goodness!

Lookie what I found yesterday! It was marked $5.00 but they were having a sale so I paid less than that. I'm not that wild about the subject matter but it's pretty and it goes with the theme of old prints in my dining room. Jeff even liked it and I have to admit I was surprised that he did. I figured I get an eye roll at the very least LOL!

The original gold leaf has been painted over but it still has the original glass and I'm going to assume the original print. What's amazing is the gesso is mostly intact. There are only a couple of small damaged spots. Turns out it was donated by the cashier who checked me out. All she could tell me is that it had hung in her Grandmother's house for many years. It was given to her Grandmother by her Aunt in Houston and it was old when she bought it.
