Heartbreaking But No Longer In Use

antique slave tag. This 1830 dated tag is an early date for the slave hire badges, since the earliest known date on any tag is the year 1800. The number 116 is the issue sequence for the occupation of servant. Verso the tag is ornately etched with “SEDALIA PLANTATION THE BEARER IS AUTHORIZED TO BE IN NATCHEZ AT ANY HOUR WITH BUGGY AND HORSE 1830.” Recto, it reads Sedalia Plantation 1830 #116 within the outline of mid-relief raised detailed ring design. Now an object of curiosity, and no longer a sign of captivity, the tag measures at approx. 2.5 x 2.” There is a warm patina that covers the bronze tag, and you can see the signs of high detail on the ornate etching.

As brutal as it is to consider this terrible piece of hardware, it is a part of history and can remind us of the progress we have made as a society in the many decades since this was in use. Let us not forget that there are people still in the world who have been forcibly removed from their families and put into modern captivity.

WOW! Truly Spectacular! Auction Ending 2/3/15, 10:26PM EST http://yqz.me/notre_dame

We have an antique, circa 1899, folk art wooden model of the renowned French architecture, Notre Dame Cathedral. Each wooden trim and pillar is

1899 Antique Folk Art Notre Dame Cathedral Gothic Hand Carved Wood Model

nicely hand-carved and fitted, all made from scratch, with no indicators of a ready made kit! It’s not hard to see the time, effort, and love that went into making this detailed masterpiece. Even the rose windows are ornately applied, made from what appears to be a shiny, sheet like material, adorned with paint to mimic the ornate design of cathedral windows. Each molding and frame creating the two towers, pinnacles, arcades, and gables are original wood. In addition, the beautiful and famous west facade of Cath├ędrale Notre-Dame de Paris has several miniature clay figurines attached to the plinth- there’s a priest, and several Frenchmen in period attire.

The cathedral is on a wooden plinth, measuring at approx. 11.75 x 18.25 x 9.75,” and the cathedral itself measures at approx. 12″ h x 10″ w; weighing a sturdy 5.8 pounds! There are places of wood glue formation or solidification, the tips of the pinnacles are chipped off, wear of the wood is apparent, and its apparent that some of the clay figures have detached, with one chipped off. Otherwise, a truly amazing folk art piece. You won’t be disappointed with this Notre Dame miniature scale wooden model! Happy Bidding!

Original Engraving by Jacob Gole Auction Ends Feb 3, 2015 9:30PM EST http://yqz.me/RareEngraving

In this auction, we have an antique engraving titled, “Prudentia Vigilantia” by Jacob Gole with the original painting executed by Du Molin. Gole,

RARE 1699 Antique Doctor Franciscus Piens Portrait Mezzotint Engraving Gole

RARE 1699 Antique Doctor Franciscus Piens Portrait Mezzotint Engraving Gole

was a known Dutch (mezzotint) engraver from 1675-1724. We are dating this piece late 17th to early 18th century, circa 1699. We are calling this rare, because the only other engravings we found are currently in the archives of the U.S. National Library of Medicine, History of Medicine Division, and Rijks Museum Collection. The mezzotint depicts a portrait of Franciscus Hadrianides Piens, an author and medicinal doctor in right pose, holding skull. There is a coat-of-arms underneath the portrait with a knight mask adorned with a lion. Piens was a pioneer in the medicinal world in the late 1600’s, as he and his colleages published a book titled, “Tractatus de febribus” in 1689, published by Apud Samuelem de Tournes.The paper is cut close by a previous owner, and then laid on a matte board paper and displayed in an antique frame with wavy glass (with bubbles!) and black wooden frame rimmed with gesso. It measures at approx. 19 x 14″ with a sight size of 10 x 15.” There is wear on the frame, and some chipping of the gesso rim. Understandable toning and foxing on the engraving and matting. A true collector’s item, sure to be a conversation starter. Happy Bidding!
