Description

Today we are offering a lovely pair of antique paper cut silhouettes signed by the artist, Nancy Parrish. We believe these silhouettes date to the 19th century, but there is very little information about the artist available. Each frame holds three silhouettes, all characters from Dickens’ literature. One features Mrs Nickleby, Scrooge, and Sam Weller; the other Mr. Bumble, Oliver Twist and Mrs. Cratchit. The pieces seem to have been reframed (perhaps in the 1960s) and are currently displayed on a pink wallpaper background with her signature cut out and added to the bottom left corner. The cardboard backs have the following information written in ink, “Charles Dickens’ Characters, Mrs. Nickleby, Scrooge, Sam Weller, Original hand cut hand brushed silhouettes, hand gilded frame,” and “Charles Dickens’ Characters, Mrs. Cratchit, Oliver Twist and Mr. Bumble, Original hand cut hand brushed silhouettes, hand gilded frame.” We assume the descriptions of the frames refer to previous pieces, not these frames. The frames measures 8 3/4 x 6 3/4″. The silhouettes are about 4 3/4″ in height. Will be lovely additions to a folk art or silhouette collection. Fresh from a Rhode Island estate.
