Antique oil painting of black Chow Chow dog

Antique oil painting of black Chow Chow dog

A beautiful antique oil painting on board of a fluffy black Chow Chow dog that most likely dates back to the late 19th to early 20th century. A very decorative and charming closeup portrait with lovely shading and form, the painting is nicely mounted in an antique gilded gesso frame, which has some attractive wear and patination showing its age. The bottom right corner bears a signature reading 'R. Jenks'.


Approximate dimensions:

Canvas: 33.5cm x 27.5cm (13.25” x 11”)

Frame: 39.5cm x 34cm (15.75” x 13.5”)

This painting is in great antique condition and ready to display. There is no apparent damage to it. There is one very small stroke of paint on the forehead of the dog that can be seen under UV light and the bottom right corner seems to be stripped of its varnish, neither of those two can be seen without UV light though.
The antique wooden frame with gilt gesso has some minor damage as expected for its age but still displays great. There is a gap on the bottom left corner.
