I went to a very old man’s antique store in Jenks, OK. I had been there before. He has lots of good stuff, but it was real dusty and not a very clean store. He’s ancient and seems to really enjoy being alive and being able to work. I found a Victorian watercolor of a woman. It was one of the prettiest ones I have ever found and the frame was great! He wanted more but I got it for $60. A real good deal. When I got home I did a search of Irene Firmin, the artist. Irene Firman was noted in a catalogue of ” The Toledo Museum of Art founded by Edward Drummond Libbey. The number listing was 89 and the title was: “Perfume,” by Irene Firmin. She was,also, listed in “Artists In Ohio 1787 – 1900”. States she was and artist, active in Findlay, Hancock County, at the turn of the Twentieth Century. I found another of her works on eBay. It is a paintng of a girl holding flowers. it says, “Beautiful and delicate the work is on paper, not sure if oils or pastels. Frame measures apprx 9.25″ x 7.25″. Actual image is apprx 3″ tall. Brass finish on the frame with a chain for hanging.” Another search found: Antique Victorian Painting Irene Firmin Oil Pastel Lady Findlay Ohio 1897. I’m excited to find such a great example of a Victorian lady watercolor to add to my collection. The painting at the bottom is one I found on eBay. They want $195.00 for it.
