This is an early hollow-cut silhouette of an 18th C gentleman with ribbon-tied hair and stamped "MUSEUM" for the Charles Wilson Peale shop (1741-1827). It is in a gold toned frame - 4 1/2" x 5 1/4" under an eglomise painted glass. According to the bio of Peale by Peggy McClard, Peale was born in Chestertown, MD. He "opened a Museum of Natural Science and Art" in 1795 in Philadelphia. He added his silhouette business in 1802. The majority of the silhouettes from this time were embossed "Museum". Peale had acquired a mixed-race slave couple and Peale taught their 11 year old son, Moses Williams, the art of silhouette cutting. It is WILLIAMS who cut most of the silhouettes that are stamped "MUSEUM". He was emancipated in 1802, married the Peale's cook, had a daughter and continued managing the silhouette cutting business until his retirement. Williams should be remembered as one of the earliest known African-American silhouette artists in the USA."

Price: Sold, thanks so much!

At 7 7/8” tall, this early 1700s hog scraper has the brass wedding band across the middle ~ it shows its age and is worn through and dented. Even without the chair hook, it is a well-used treasure. The candle lever does work and the cup is cleated into the base.

Price: Sold, thanks so much!
