Carved Patriotic Wooden Frame, Circa 1876, Walnut
Anonymous Carver
Print Title: Family Monument from the History of our Country
Artist and Engraver, George Michael Enzing-Miller
Probably New York, Circa 1870, entire view

A complex and symbolic work of praise, joy and triumph that combines allegory images intended to present the glorious past of the United States. The iconography beginning in 1492 with Indians, explorers and Pilgrims; scenes from the American Revolution featuring an American eagle pouncing on the British lion and unicorn; also a depiction of vast lands, a city, a river crowded with ships of commerce and locomotives stating our prosperity all beneath a prominent American flag. The work is surmounted by a pyramid after the Acropolis displaying state shields; also shown are fifteen presidents, yet curiously, Lincoln is not present. Washington prominently holds the Constitution and covers his heart with the other hand; seated is a figure holding the Declaration of Independence; crowning this work are the goddesses of Liberty and Justice while in the vista is the capitol surmounted by our American flag. (The artist, a German born painter, came to America in 1848; he exhibited at the national Academy and the American Art Union. The artist intent was to move the viewer of this monument of American history compelling emotional participation; graphic justification for the fight to preserve the nation; the Civil War. The print is strong and has been professionally mounted, the margins are trimmed, some staining with all else very good.

We assume that the outstanding bass-relief frame with mounted ornamentation was carved specifically for this work by a skilled artist. Centering the frame are borders of bullets, stars and a rectangular laurel wreath tied at the bottom with a bow displaying 1492-1620; larger three-dimensional stars are mounted at the corners; surmounting the work is a US shield; at the bottom is a scroll carved with Geo. Washington's name and 1776. The frame has an applied molded outside edge and gilt liner; gilt has thinned to silver.
(Excellent condition and color)
Dimensions: 37.75 by 48.75" frame, 23.5 by 34.5" sight-size.
