[Scherenschnitt of Racehorse and Jockey]

N.p. [Pennsylvania?]: n.d. [1820s-40s?]. Unique. 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 in shrinkwrap (not examined under the mat). Size within mat is ca. 17 x 13 inches. Very good. Item #30919

Provenance: Chester County, PA, ca. 1820s-40s (this information provided by the late owner, an expert in the field).  The details of horse and rider are English; the image probably comes from a printed source.  Very dramatic and decorative. Shipping/handling will be extra; please keep this in mind when ordering.

Price: $250.00
