Four (4) Portrait Miniatures of German Linen Weavers
1853. Each of the four is a silhouette profile of an individual linen weaver with penciled inscriptions identifying each by name and with the profession of linen weaver. Dated 1853, 1854, and 1855. The fourth is undated. Speculation is that these may have been given as an annual honor or acknowledgment for service. Largest measures 4" x 4 ¾". Housed in heavy board and glass self frame. Two corner cracks on one glass.
