    TAVERN INTERIOR BY FOLLOWER OF TENIERS THE YOUNGER 1640-1670 ORIGINALLY BELONGED TO THE DECEASED ESTATE OF EDWARD WARNER LEICESTERSHIRE'S MASTER OF THE FAMOUS 'QUORN HUNT'.

    This is a unique chance to acquire an early genre themed mid 17th.century oil on canvas in the baroque style, depicting peasants smoking and drinking in a tavern or ale house.
    The actual canvas size is 22 Inches x 18 Inches and overall measurements to include the frame are 30 Inches x 36 Inches.
    The brief history known is that the painting was sold back in 1919 by Warner Shepherd and Wade Auctioneers upon the death of Edward Warner huntmaster back in 1911.
    There was a country house sale held on site at the famous Quorn Hall, Leicestershire's famous hunt headquarters for over 300 years.
    All the house contents were sold off and I have the original catalogue of sale dated Tuesday 2nd, 3rd, and 4th December 1919.
    The painting was incorrectly listed as Rubens school as it had a label on the front of the frame, which might have originally belonged to another work of art.
    The frame is of the correct period being approx.1630-1670, and is in good solid condition. The painting itself has been wax relined and was probably cleaned some years ago.
    There are no signs of any previous repairs and the surface colours look sharp and fairly bright.
    There is no obvious signature or date visible.
    The execution of the painting is extremely similar to works by artist Teniers The Younger who was born in 1610, but cannot be attributed to him in the absence of any signature or initials.
    It is believed that this painting was sold last at the NEC in Birmingham back in the eighties for a considerable sum.
    Today such a painting could cost a small fortune if it were ever proven to be by one of the old masters, but in the absence of clear identification of the artist, it is to be offered at a sensible price reflecting all the circumstances.
    Similar style paintings do not seem to be available in the general market place today and only appear in museums or private collections.
