Location: Dallas


The somewhat whimsical subject of this engraving depicts a servant woman befriending the guard while entertaining guests for her master in the other room. Such stolen moments were considered "perks" for those in the servant's pool, although frowned upon by their masters. Survives with its original gilded frame, all in exceptional condition!
Signed F. Pieters.
Circa 1885.
Measures 30.5 x 26.
