Vintage Golde Pyrography picture of Solome
|| for item safn-2566
This wonderful old wood burning picture is of the famous dancer Solome, King Herods step daughter. Measures a generous 19" by 25". All original backing with sticker Golde Pyro-Art-Wood. Even has the crafters original handwritten name on a sticker on the back who burned the picture in the late 1800's(Mrs.H D.Johnson,174 Bond St, Hartford Conn.) Wonderful coloring and patina. This was probably made when Oscar Wilde came out with the book in the 1890's and this was a popular subject. A great art noveau piece of pyrography. I have more photos of back and labels, ect upon request.
