Antique Painting of Cat and Dog Fighting Over Small Game Birds Hunting ca. 1850



Mid 19th century, oil painting in black laquered wooden frame. One of the most difficult things in interior design, we feel, is decorating the walls. We are no specialist in selling antique paintings, but whenever we get a chance to purchase a hand-painted, hunting or wildlife related painting from the Victorian era then we always try to acquire it. Especially when the details are as good as in this 1850s painting and when there is some type of 'action' going on that really lifts it above the average. In this case both the cat on the left and the dog on the right are pretty fierce in trying to defend their position. The cat is looking for an 'easy meal' and the dog is protecting his master's game birds and hare. There is some superficial crackling of the paint in a few spots in this antique work of art, but the colors and especially the realistic details more than make up for that consistent-with-age-wear. To us, this is the perfect painting for a private library or office, but it would also look great in any provincial (inspired) estate interior. If you like the look and feel of this fine quality, antique Victorian painting as much as we do then you will love our price. Especially when taken into account that perfect packing and worldwide delivery from our store to your door in just 4 to 6 workdays are complimentary. Maximum width x height x depth: 16.8 x 13.8 x 2.15 inches. Width x height of the panel itself: 11.2 x 8.25 inches. We have a passion for the unique, for quality, for artistic and beautiful and for craftsmanship of years gone by. Your purchases will be extremely well packaged and we look forward to serving you (again). You can shop all our 1000+ listings by pushing the button that reads 'View All From Seller'.
