since about Victorian times (roughly 1837 on)
The boy at the head of the table seems to have his priorities right. The child at the front on the right has a wonderfully realistic air of concentration. But whatever is wrong with the mum? Her detachment from the meal table suggests a lurking tragedy - along with the empty chair . . . which, rather mundanely and irrelevantly sends me off into memories of when every home had one just like it.Lucy
Funnily enough just been out with a chap whouse Aunt had 9 children and he was just talking about what chaos meal times were. All good points you made.
So amazing! I learn so much with you. Thank you for all the beauty.:-)
Thank you for being interested Ana.
Love the dog's expression. Does anyone know what the thing is on the table that looks like a wooden compass with a blade? Thanks. Sal
