Patriotic American Feather Art Picture

Ca. 1930

This is the first time I have seen one of these. It reminds me of the earlier Chinese needlework pictures that American sailors bought as souvenirs of their voyages to the Orient in the late 19th century. Almost everything is done in different colored feathers except the paper eagle’s claws beak, eye and the black mounting paper or mat board (not examined out of the frame). Under glass

Price

$350

Condition

Overall very good ++ condition. One arrow has come loose and the frame has some scuffs and dings. The old paper covering sealing the back side is loose in places.

Measurements

15.25" H X 23" L frame size

Next Piece

Half Hull Model of a Ship

A large example with fine detail and description painted on the hull and back board. It is dated 1856. It was possibly made closer to the end of the 19th or early 20th century.
