hover over image to zoom

A fine and rare decorative panel from a Victorian tobacconist showing Sir Walter Ralegh enjoying the fruits of his ventures into colonization which have long associated his name with Virginia. The Victorian artist has depicted Sir Walter in a 19th century interpretation of an Elizabethan room setting, surrounded by the trappings of an intrepid explorer. The serving boy has just averted his mission to extingiush his smoldering master! Oil painted on a tin panel.
