Americana, Tramp & Folk Art

This is a NO RESERVE Auction! Woven together in this sale are decorative objects that helped shape America's cultural identity. Hand-crafted by artisans, these household artworks describe the everyday American experience between the 1870's and 1940's. A painted metal cutout depicts a young girl watering flowers, while a copper rooster weathervane celebrates the farmer's most reliable alarm clock. With simple pocket-knives, these craftspeople whittled wood into intricate frames, dollhouse furniture, and monkey banks. Yet, despite their humble origins, these folk and tramp objects are far from quaint. They are threads of 20th century rural life that will create a sense of welcome in any home.
