Inky black silkwork pictures dating from the end of the eighteenth century, one depicting a mill house at the edge of a pool in the middle distance, seen beyond gnarled trees on the near bank which rises curving away on the right, where a man on horseback and leading another is disappearing over the crest. The pendant a Mediterranean landscape showing a castle with a round tower at the edge of the sea, with a hillside rising to left, a path approaching along the bay from the left foreground and a man standing in a canoe holding a large fishing net, talking to a seated companion, beneath a small tree near the shore in the right foreground.
