Fine 19th century painting of a Moghul interior in a carved hardwood frame


The oval painting measures 125 x 85 mm and shows an interior with elaborately carved, painted and gilded columns, probably the Diwan-i-Am or audience hall in the Delhi Fort [Lal Qila]. The larger than usual ‘miniature is st in a white metal rim into a finely carved rectangular hardwood frame measuring overall 245 x 195mm {approx 9.5 x 7.5 ins]. The simple metal strut from the reverse is missing and a wire hanging device added a little crudely.
