The beautiful round wooden Herbert Meier Handarbeit oil painting from Germany is in excellent condition. The round shaped wooden wall decoration already has the metal wall hanger on the back. The gorgeous theme of a fruit and/or garden basket overrunning with all sorts of favorites is wonderfully depicted with just the right amount of bright coloring. The oil painting is on the actual wood. The rounded exterior also has a rounded rim. The round shape of the painted section at first glance looks to be set in the wooden background giving it a framed appearance. However, it is all one piece.
The "Handarbeit" on the back is in German which is loosely translated as "handcrafted" or "handiwork". This is an original handcrafted oil painting from Germany. The artist is noted on the back - Herbert Meier.
The colors of the painting are very vivid with a nice textural appearance.
While there are no marks on the back that indicate this is an actual oil painting, the slight sheen and textural appearance of the center fruit-basket theme is consistent with oil as opposed to water. And, while this does not rule out acrylic, the thickness appears to be more consistent with oil.
There are no breaks, cracks, chips, or repair places on this round oil-on-wood wall-hanging painting. There are a couple of tiny spots of blue color toward the bottom front left on the rounded rim. They are very hard to notice from any distance. They are to the bottom left under the lowest grape. Also, there are some faint vintage wear and rub marks on the back that are most likely from transport and/or being hung on a wall.
The decorative possibilities for this beautiful piece run in many directions. The pinkish round delicacies in the basket could be onions instead of fruit. So, this round wall-hanging decoration would work great with a garden theme. Also, the entirety of the fruit basket painting placed on a smaller size wooden canvas makes this an excellent wall-hanging kitchen decoration. Too, since it on a medium to darker stained wood, the living area or hallway wall would also be enhanced with this beautiful decorative painting.
The collector will appreciate this gorgeous wall-hanging decoration for its beautiful garden fruit basket theme and its excellent condition.
This is the type of piece that is heirloom worthy and would certainly make a great gift for anyone friends or family.
Also, the high quality combined with the compact size would make this a great wedding gift.
The round wooden Herbert Meier Handarbeit oil painting from Germany weighs 19.0 oz.
The round wooden wall decoration measures approximately 10" tall x 9 5/8" wide from outside to outside.
The inner painting section measures 7 7/8" wide x 8.25" tall.
The round wooden fruit basket theme wall hanging decoration is approximately .75" thick.
Please note that since this is handcrafted, the oil-on-wood painting is a tad bit out-of-round and out of level. While it has a round shape, it is not perfectly round and has an ever-so-slight wave in the wood. This is a characteristic feature of Handarbeit (handcrafted) pieces and is very hard to notice unless pulled up close and inspected with a light looking across the face to the other side. These differences are so faint the pictures may or may not show them.

***Note on Measurements: All measurements are taken and described as close as possible. Where only an approximate measurement is available we will put approximately in the listing.
***Our Measurements for clothing are taken with the garment laying flat with closures fastened - zippers are zipped and buttons buttoned.
***The Bust measurement is obtained by measuring across the flat chest of the garment from armpit to armpit and then multiplying that number by two. To get the chest measurement simply divide the Bust by two.
***We clean our vintage inventory of surface dirt and dust before we list it on our site. We would not want to receive something dirty so we are not going to send our customers something with original dust or dirt. However please note that after shipping we recommend all items be cleaned thoroughly before use. This does three things: (1) It helps you know your item, (2) It helps you ensure your item is clean according to your standards, and (3) It removes any dust or grime that may have come from the shipping and delivery process.
***We do not polish or repaint our inventory as many of our customers prefer the vintage patina look over a new painted or polished look.
***Please pay close attention to the pictures as they may show more than I may be able to explain.
***Please note that sometimes we enhance our pictures for sharpness and clarity.
***We aim to be good stewards of our planet; therefore, we may use or reuse boxes and/or packing that are clean and ship worthy.

***Textiles and Fabrics such as linens, tapestries, clothing, tablecloths, or simple craft materials may be wrinkled or have lines upon arrival as they are folded for shipping. It is recommended they be laid out or hung up.
***As is common with pre-owned items they could have little marks that are not so easily detectable - we refer to these as vintage wear and rub marks. While I do personally inspect each item, I can miss small marks that may not show up with a regular inside light. That being said, I try to be very picky and careful to make sure the details are explained truthfully, honestly, and upfront.
***Virtually all pre-owned items have vintage wear and rub marks. This is simply a term that we have coined to point out that because: (1) they are older, (2) most likely they are not in their original plastic, wrapping, or packaging, (3) have been stored, (4) transported, (5) and handled - they are very likely to have little, small, or slight discolorations, marks, places, wear, etc. Hence, this is why we often have longer descriptions. We try very hard to make sure you know what we know.
