[Scherenschnitt of Racehorse and Jockey]
N.p. [Pennsylvania?]: n.d. [1820s-40s?]. Unbound sheet. Large scissor-cut silhouette showing a racehorse and jockey walking over turf marked with hoofprints and tufts of grass. Very good, cut from paper that is blacker than appears in the photo. Scattered foxing overall to backing paper. Matted and shrinkwrapped. Size within mat is ca. 17 x 13 inches. Not examined under the mat. Very good. Item #30919
Provenance: Chester County, PA, ca. 1820s-40s (this information provided by the late seller, an expert in the field). The details of horse and rider are English; since there was little flat racing in Pennsylvania at that date, the image probably comes from a printed source. Very dramatic and decorative. Shipping/handling will be extra; please keep this in mind when ordering.
