Very fine quality silk neckerchief featuring Still Life by Thomas Warrender (1662 - died c 1715) 

Although apparently a straightforward ‘trompe l’oeil’ (illusionist) still-life, an inscription on the back of this picture claims that it has a symbolic message. The note reads "2 Royalist Allegorical Pictures/Explanation in the Keeping of the/family". This explanation having been lost, the precise meaning of the picture has defied convincing interpretation. In its general composition the painting evokes the still-life paintings of the seventeenth century Netherlandish artist Edwaert Colyer. This is Warrender’s only known easel painting.

Suitable for both men and women

Hand finished.
