Additional Information: A diminutive example in predominantly red paint which was
overpainted in black during the 19th century. Most of the black paint has thinned or
simply worn away exposing a warm red surface displaying great age and patina.

the other with ovolo front corner.

inlayed with “ROSIE” (walnut), the other rail displays a bird on branch.
