Additional Information: Liberty poles capped with Liberty Caps were erected in town
squares…the iconic symbol is displayed on coins, and seals; Miss. Liberty is often
shown with a Liberty cap on pole within diversified mediums. Before the Revolutionary
War, a secret society was formed, its members, The Sons of Liberty often met under
“Liberty Trees”. The “Liberty Poles” were symbols of the same “Liberty Trees”. Not only
is Miss. Liberty depicted carry a pole surmounted with the iconic symbol, she is
frequently depicted wearing the classic symbol also known as a Phrygian cap. Carved
wooden caps were carried in American patriotic parades and at political events such as
parades in cities and towns visited by General Lafayette during his twenty-four-state
tour of 1824-1825. This rare artifact displays a shallow mortise within hat band, likely for
a rope pulley suggesting that it was atop a flagpole. The wrought iron shaft is original to
the piece.
The cap can be displayed as shown or vertically…or on a conical riser so only the hat is
shown. We have fabrication services available.

Memory Ware, Observation Tower, Two Story Foundation, Spiral Staircase
Made by S.C. Warren
West Hartford, Vermont
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.
