A charming painting by Queen Victoria's eldest daughter the Princess Royal has sold for £10,000.<br />
<br />
Princess Victoria produced the impressive floral oil on canvas artwork, which is signed and dated, in 1886.<br />
<br />
It shows an assortment of marguerites, sunflowers and roses, alongside glassware, shells and a fan, on top of a table draped in silk.<br />

She gifted it on behalf of her, Queen Victoria and her younger sister Princess Beatrice to Charles Henfrey, to thank him for loaning them the Villa Clara in Lake Como, Italy, in 1879.
