A most charming pair of French mid 19th Century Napoleon III period oil on canvas paintings, dated 1870. Each painting is set within their original and most decorative frames with a molded edge and inner giltwood border. One painting depicts a duck in tall water flora covering her ducklings. The other shows a mother hen and her chicks feeding at a wheat sprig while one is safely nestled in her plumage. Wonderful rich hues throughout.
