    The attached picture/painting has been in our family from at least the 1950's (I have known it all my life). My mother always said it came from the top of a chocolate box. Having done research on line I am not sure - she is not around to ask anymore.
    In trying to find out the chickens illustrated in the picture I came across a framed print exactly the same. The signature which appears on this picture is also attached. I do not have a picture of the back of our painting or a signature. The picture posted is the only ones I have.
    Is anyone able to identify who the artist is, the year it was painted approx, and did this picture come from a chocolate box as my mother has said?

    Your picture looks like a print under plastic, framed in cardboard.

    What country are you in?

    Chocolate boxes did once feature fancier artwork than nowadays. Could be older than 1950s.

    Some metal boxes and the cardboard ones later did have really fancy lids. I'd be more inclined to believe a box lid than inherited $$$ artwork. Odd are better of the box lid.

    Looks like it could be an illustration for an Easter candy box - Edwardian maybe.
