Charming Folk Art Signed Watercolor of Yellow and Blue Birds

New England, ca. 1820. Watercolor and ink on wove paper. Delightfully folky yet sophisticated in its simplicity. Facing yellow birds with blue wings, black eyes, and brown legs are separated by sprigs or green, all on lush green ground. Signed underneath (note the long ‘S’), in what appears to read: “Mifs Francis Hollister”____ “M. A Watson”. Likely a Reward of Merit to Francis from her teacher. Housed in a oyster-white painted ripple frame with gold liner. Frame size about 9 3/8 inches x 7 1/2.
