Silhouettes

Antique Silhouette Child Holding Posies
  • Sweet cut & paste silhouette of a child standing in a sepia watercolor landscape and holding a small bouquet of painted flowers.  Although both genders of this young age wore the same style clothing, this is likely a young girl because boys were seldom depicted holding flowers.  She wears a calf-length dress with short puffed sleeves.  She also wears a short beaded necklace and a bracelet.  Her slippers have ankle straps.  The gold embellishment adds a wonderful touch to the subject.  She resides in a period rosewood veneer frame that measures 6 3/8” x 5”.  Very good condition. Circa 1830.
