~ MUSEUM QUALITY 19th c AMERICAN FOLK ART PORTRAIT...BOY HOLDING BIRD ~INSCRIBED ON STRETCHER..."Picked up in York 1 Oct 1912 by B......."AN ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE PIECE OF 19th c AMERICAN FOLK one look, and you can see that this is an ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE PIECE of 19th c AMERICAN FOLK ART PORTRAITURE! It doesnt get much better than this FANTASTIC PIECE! A chubby smiling young boy...showing two bottom teeth....dressed in a pink silk suit with gold embellishments .... holding a beautiful small bird in his hand. The young boy has that "little man" look ... you can tell he must have been quite a handful! Folk art portraits of children are the most sought after and demand the highest sale values.

I can not make out the last word and I assume it's someones name. If you are a lover or collector of AMERICAN FOLK ART...then this is a MUST HAVE PIECE! One of the VERY BEST I'VE SEEN IN A LONG CONDITION ~The condition on this piece is EXCELLENT. I detect NO IN-PAINTIING under black light inspection. The piece has NOT been RE-LINED, and there is no chips...missing paint or rubs. It has most likely been cleaned and revarnished at some point...but even that is not obvious. It may be UNTOUCHED. It comes framed in a beautiful, very substantial period frame. The frame has rubbing and dings...as expected...but it is solid and very sturdy. It displays the piece PERFECTLY!
