Charles Spencelayh is one of England's finest ever miniature artists .
His painting 'The Old Dealer' sold at Sotheby's in 2009 for £345,000!
This is a beautiful example of his work with his trademark smiling old gentleman, sat at the table unwrapping his fish no doubt to be made ready for dinner.
Miniature painting is one of the hardest art forms to master due to the small intricate nature of the brushstrokes required and it is seen in the same manner as the illuminated manuscript writers of the medieval age.
To paint something this size with so much emotion is a testimony to Charles Spencelayh.
This is a very rare example due to its size and highly sought after.
The painting measure 8.5 x 11cm is signed in the bottom left corner and beautifully framed.
There is also a nameplate to front and label to verso.
