A wonderful antique pokerwork/pyrography panel by I W Wells, an American artist who flourished between 1845 - 1880. He was active in Pennsylvania/Philadelphia, yet most of his work is conserved in the Pinto Collection, which is part of the Birmingham Museums Trust in the UK. A portrait of Tennyson by Wells is in the Virginia State Art Collection in the US. It was given to the Library of Virginia in 1879.
Our panel is signed and dated on the verso: "Burnt by I W Wells April 15th, 1848" the artwork can be hung on a wall with a minuscule eye screw.
