A Fun Find
I recently stumbled upon this gem in a local antique/thrift store. She was hiding demurely behind a couch, but I spotted her first thing and fell instantly in love. At first I assumed that it was an engraving, but upon closer inspection I now believe it to be an actual sketch! Here is a (rather bad) picture of the corner. You can just barely see traced lines around the edges of the whole picture.
I just love the composition of the whole thing!
Her face is beautifully and softly done.
The spinning wheel is a neat touch. I'm a little confused about the little cup. Anyone have any ideas what that might have been used for?
