Memory Ware, Observation Tower, Two Story Foundation, Spiral Staircase
Made by S.C. Warren
West Hartford, Vermont
1894
Mixed media, found objects, wood, copper, plaster, paint - SOLD


Antique Memory Ware Observation Tower, West Hartford, Vermont, angle view

The surface is covered with a rich variety of objects such as buttons, jewelry, railroad tokens; tintype photographs, glass vials, shells, colored glass, Crucifixes, lion's heads; even three Tartan Ware napkin rings and a small painted tin hand! The selection, positioning and application of objects is amazing as is the compartmentalized balance; object transitioning and relationships. The artist identified himself by a printed card framed within a repousse brass photograph frame surmounted with cutout brass numerals "1894" centered by glass windows. The work is architecturally significant; staircases lead to a balustrade deck with a spiral staircase leading to covered observation deck crowned by a sheet metal umbrella. The work seduces emotional participation; can't be appreciated without focused and relaxed timely observation.
There are a few small areas of loss, piece is stable; constructed in three sections.
