Antique Nantucket Whirligig and Weathervane Late 19th Early 20th Century




Late 19th / Early 20th Century.  You'll see that phrase often describing American folk art Sculpture.  A real photo postcard dated 1914.  Was this fellow in business 14 years earlier?  Probably.  This "Nantucket Merchant" has the standard Sailor whirligig and Whale weathervane, but the art-twirling Bear (second from left) never really took off.  It's up to you if the crow on the right is real or not...cheap printing.  Most of the crows around here won't let you get too close.  (See his competitor below on the back cover of our new book)

Antique Southern Hooked Rugs Folk Art from Georgia RPPC Collection Jim Linderman





Adairsville, Georgia is about halfway between Atlanta, GA and Chattanooga, TN.  Route 75 probably allows one to skirt the roadside craft folk one could have run into during the 1930s, but it looks like Mrs. J. A. Greene did all right. Hooked Rugs and knick-knacks of wood likely made by her son.  Folk Art of the rural South.   RPPC dated 1941 Collection Jim Linderman

African-American Folk Art Sculpture Yard Art in Georgia Hank Aaron Original Photographs by Jim Linderman




I am not disclosing the location of these beautiful cement folk art tributes in a yard in Georgia.  As I recall, the artist has been written about some...but these photographs are over 20 years old and I do not know if the work still stands.  Hank Aaron, an airplane, a bird.  African-American Folk Art Sculpture created as environmental work tends to end up in others hands if it can be moved.  I hope this work remains or has found a museum home by now.

Blackface Theater. Young Women and Children of Vaudeville photographs by Frank Wendt






There are numerous studies and photographs of blackface in the American theater, but it is a bit less common to see women…and I guess even more unusual to see young women and children.  A series of cabinet card photographs circa 1910 of young vaudeville performers in burnt cork.  These were essentially among the first "publicity photographs" and sold at the stage door following performances.
