The Fisherman’s Wife and Her Baby

Charming late 19th or early 20th century chromolithograph.  A young woman sits in a garden mending nets while and older man, perhaps her father, bounces her baby on his knee. The style of the woman’s hat and the mans wooden shoes suggest that the scene depicted is in the Netherlands or Belgium.
Dimensions: 52 x 74 cm in the frame

Note: the brownspot seen on the woman’s dress is an external spot on the glass.
