M.A. Penny, Bird on Branch with Plums - 19th-century watercolour painting

An original 19th-century watercolour painting, M.A. Penny Bird on Branch with Plums.

A striking painting of a bird resting a branch of a plum tree. It appears to have been executed in an unusual technique, possibly partially with a method of sponge printing or similar. The painting has been finely cut out and laid down on backing paper, giving a slightly three-dimensional paper cut effect. 

Signed lower right.
Some age toning, minor marks and slight creasing as shown. There are three engravings pasted onto the verso of the paper, which do not adversely affect the front.
21.6cm x 18.3cm.
