A charming and extremely well presented Arts and Crafts picture, with a beautiful hand-marbled inner mount. “Marigold Garden” was written and llustrated by Kate Greenaway. The image printed above the poem depicts a mother and child. The mother sits on a chair with her child standing on her lap holding a ball and wearing a bonnet and gown.
