Description A fine Art Deco circa 1925 oil painting on canvas by noted British artist Ernest Borough Johnson.

This lovely painting is of two young girls sat together on a sofa, bows in their hair and one holding a small bouquet. A statue stands on a tall plinth beside them. It looks to be a special occasion. Signed middle right.
