Nautical theme reverse paintingsBy Mark Chervenka
This 3 1/4" dia. covered wooden box with a reverse painted glass insert is among a group of new early American styled nautical subjects. Most are of nautical themes that feature named ships flying American flags. The new pieces range from rectangular images in frames to small pieces like this covered box.
The paintings are completely done by hand in China and have all the brushstrokes found in vintage paintings. The quality overall is fairly good.
