Antique Toy Rowboat on Roller Skate Wheels, Original Paint
Unknown Maker, Wheels Marked Union Hardware, Torrington, Connecticut
Possibly sailor made for a child at home…, entire view 1

A unique toy likely dating to circa 1890-1930; highly oxidized dark green paint;
competently constructed with stern enclosure, two seats, keel, and carved rudder.
Interestingly the starboard side is about-void of paint and displays a fabulously rich
patina. Perhaps the boat was in direct sunlight for many decades causing thinning and
eventual loss of paint…displays well. (Length: 31"; width: 5"; height: 6.75")

SOLD

Diorama, a Dioramic Masterpiece Capturing a Moment in Time
Anonymous, probably French
1890 (E.V. above date in pencil)
Mixed media, paper, cloth, paint, photographs, twigs; die cuts, and feathers within glazed shadowbox having gilt molding. (Excellent original condition) - SOLD


Antique Diorama, Die Cut, Anonymous, Probably French, 1890, angle view

A large three-dimensional collage; theater; technically brilliant and elaborate panorama organized on different planes displaying competent and successful use of prospective, design, and creativity. The work seduces and compels emotional participation; what is the translation? Who is the mustached man? The artist used actual cutouts; photographs (heads/faces) on printed bodies of gentleman; clever bending, rolling, and positioning of human figures creating depth and movement. The makers' competent layering and painting of cardstock used to fabricate architectural elements such as stonework, portico, balcony and billiard room produced realistic imagery; tromp l'oeil; The detailing of pierced architectural elements, faux painted marble, wallpaper, and fencing fool the eye; the viewer sees wood, stone and iron rather than paper. The landscaping, drama and vignettes are sensational. This amazing art can only be fully appreciated by viewing in-person. (Dimensions: 21" H, 40.5" W, 11.25" D)

570-334 - SOLD
