Maxis "Lost & Found" #13: 18th Century Portrait

This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Here is another Maxis "Lost & Found"! LyricLee has found this texture, and with a little research, I've discovered that there was also a mesh to go with it.

I've built a package for it, and here is the final result.
Nothing astonishing, but suggestive nevertheless...

Extract the package from the rar and put it into your Downloads folder.
Note: this is not a recolour, it a new object (it has its own unique GUID); you can find it in the catalog in the Decorative/Paintings section.

CREDITS to Maxis for mesh and texture, to LyricLee for the finding, to Numenor (that's me! ) for the package. Enjoy!

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

Is that the maid from TS1? What was her name? Bridgitt I think?

Is spying really as bad as it sounds? C'mon. They're in your thoughts. You're in their bushes. It evens out.

LOL, I had a noble victorian-like couple in TS1, their first names were Lord and Lady XD and they had those exact heads! Cool, it's kinda like a Sims One memorial ^^
#17 Old 19th Jan 2006 at 4:26 AM
This portrait actually looks like it's from the 19th century, late 19th for that matter. Thanks so much for finding this.

Hmm, the woman does look like the maid from TS1. I don't know who the man is, though. Thanks for sharing this LyricLee and Numenor!

No, this painting is not recolourable and it isn't recognized by the Photo Studio plugin. You'd better choose another one
