This is one of my favourite finds, from a shop in Chesterfield where I work, I just love this watercolour on silk, the photo doen't do the artwork justice, its so fine almost translucent but vivid clolurs. Its backed by what looks like satin effect paper and then framed in a wooden gilded bamboo frame, all together it makes it look very pretty and delicate.

On the back it has an old label on it from CLive Jones, Picture Framer, The Stables, South Street, Ashby de la Zouch, ref 7850.

I googled this but got no results for this actual address, although I did hit 'Hamptons Gallery and Framers' on South Street, so maybe they took over the business.
