Vintage (late 1960s) original and signed monochrome pencil drawings by England's best-known wildlife artist, Pollyanna Pickering.
Two canine portraits are available and you have your choice of a Cane Corso or a German Shepherd ... or purchase both and SAVE! 20% with the Combined Item Discount coupon.
These two original sketches go back to the beginning of Pollyanna's professional artistic career at which time she took private commissions (from Commoners versus her current status painting Her Majesty's pooches!) from people to produce original sketches of their dogs. These 2 pictures came from an estate sale and the owners, who were from England, had specifically commissioned Pollyanna to do these portraits of their two dogs!
Both sketches are framed and in EXCELLENT! condition and framed behind glass. These wonderful vintage drawings with such incredible detail and use of highlights and shadows really deserve to be professionally re-framed and matted however, being behind glass in the frames has kept these original drawings safe from harm and thus, their current wonderful condition.

Some companies | people list the diameter of a plate or saucer with the INTERNAL FLAT MEASUREMENT, others with the EDGE-TO-EDGE measurements of the plate or saucer. We typically measure from edge to edge and will then indicate if the piece has a coupe shape.

Usually, this perceived disparity in the stated dimension is the result of this edge-to-edge versus internal flat measurement of the piece.
