A charming naive school portrait of a 9 year old Edward Haynes Eversley, stood in a country house interior, his dog sat at his feet, begging for a biscuit. There is a table with a sumptuous green cover, a vase of flowers, books and the plate of those biscuits. A giltwood and red upholstered chair is to the boy’s right with - my favourite part - a green parrot, watching on. All stood on a rather splendid looking carpet.
Oil on canvas, unframed. Obvious signs of age. Inscribed to the reverse and signed by the artist, ‘J.C. Miles’ - John Christopher Miles, an artist active at the time whose works achieve good results at auction.

According to records, Edward Haynes (or Haines) Eversley (1841-1924) had connections to North America and also Somerset, England. He married Hester Elizabeth Penruddlocke and they had 3 children.

Dated 1850.

Cunningham White's specialises in West Country Windsor chairs, specifically those from Devon and Cornwall. We also have a collection of folk art pieces and other antiques from the West Country and further afield that we feel compliment our inventory. Run from our home town of Totnes in South Devon, we are perfectly placed to uncover rare and desirable pieces from the region.

All our stock is sympathetically restored, where needed. We want all the furniture we sell to be enjoyed and used every day for years to come. We always leave pieces as original as possible though - we like our pieces to tell a story and don't try to hide this in any way.
