Bessie Bamber Fl 1900-1910
Bessie Bamber worked in oils and specialised in painting cats, kittens and occasionally puppies. She usually painted on porcelain or opaline glass and sometimes on a polished mahogany panel. She preferred to work using stuffed animals rather than live ones. There is no record of her exhibiting her paintings. A picture of three kittens with a pile of books was sold for £2,468 by Bonhams in 2004.
Our paining is an oil on opaline glass signed with the artists usual initials and housed in a later frame.
The glass has sadly previously suffered a breakage to a number of areas. Repairs have been professionally carried out and are only visible
with very careful inspection. Still a beautiful painting at a bargain price
