J. W. ROGERS
A love and friendship token to J. H. P.
Probably Batavia, New York
Circa 1860 to 1865


Antique Love Token, Friendship Token, Cutwork and Watercolor, J.W. Rogers, close up

Layered cut white and tan paper with watercolor and ink; mounted under glass within period gilt frame. This love token is unusual for its large scale and the high quality of its allover cutwork designs which incorporate watercolor detailing on the blue birds and hearts, and a polychrome floral still-life at the center of the composition. Largely an anonymous genre, it is quite rare to find a cutwork picture signed by its maker.

Inscribed in ink over red watercolor within heart at left center:
"When this / you see / remember me"
Inscribed in ink over red watercolor within heart at right center:
"Love / & / Friendship / J. H. P."
Inscribed in ink at lower right:
"Cut by J. W. Rogers, Batavia"

A possible identification for the maker of this rare large scale love token is a John W. Rogers, born about 1845, in New York, son of Aaron Rogers (born 1811), and Sarah Fosdick-Rogers (born 1815). The family resided in Batavia, and later Pembroke, in Genesee County, New York. This piece is published within David A. Schorsch and Eileen M. Smiles, The Heart of the Matter: Sentimental works on paper by 19th century Americans (Woodbury, CT, 2009), no. 15, illustrated in color. (Frame: 16.5 x 20 inches; view: 12.5 x 16 inches.)
