Eileen’s Tea Cups
Bone china teacups are laid out, one assumes, in preparation for the most sacred of rituals – afternoon tea. The composition of the painting is delightful, (we’ve found) the viewer can’t help imagining what else is going on in this scene – who is having tea?!
Delicately patterned with pink roses and gilt edges, two of the cups sit on a doily and the tablecloth has a floral pattern too.
The oil is signed ‘Peggy Deller’. Verso it is dated 1986, with Peggy Deller’s details and the title of the painting ‘Eileen’s Cups’.
There is a slight discolouration to the painting’s top left hand corner and a tiny patch of gilt on the opposite side – potentially an amateur framer at work, though elsewhere the frame looks and feels professional.
