I have been buying some new items so it was time to add this new section.
Beautiful still life with a vase of flowers and a red parrot. It is very colorful and well done. It is unsigned but I have had a similar painting by a Buffalo, NY artist. The frame is in good condition and probably original. Late 19th or early 20th century. Overall: 31" X 24". Sight: 24 1/2" X 17 1/2".
This is a really nice pair of modified bearpaw snowshoes. Probably made in the early 20th century, they are missing the bindings. The catgut has been heavily varnished but is in very good condition. A previous owner, E.C. Wilbert has personalized these on the side of each in some type of marker. They measure 40 1/2" long X 18" wide.
Nude study by George Da Maduro Peixotto (1862-1937). Oil on canvas. George Peixotto worked in Cleveland, Ohio, and New York city, and studied in Europe. He also exhibited at the Royal Academy of Arts, England. He is known for landscapes and portraits, as well as scupture. The frame is by association. Overall: 25 1/5" X 22". Sight: 18" X 15".
Landscape of a farm and surrounding hills by Ernest Fredericks (1877-1959). Fredericks painted mostly in Illinois and Arkansas and came to Eureka Springs, Ark. from Chicago. He is buried in Eureka Springs. He was a prolific painter and his colors are quite striking. Overall: 26" X 29 3/4". Sight: 20" X 23 3/4".
Nice little watercolor depicting one the emblems of the American Brotherhood of Marine Engineers. This is now the American Maritime Officers union. This watercolor is still very bright but there is a little water stain on the bottom. There is a little piece of glass missing in the upper left corner. Overall 11" X 9". Sight: 9 3/4" X 7 3/4".
