Illustration on Cloth of a Woman Hunting with a Shotgun and Dogs
[No place: no publisher]. 1903. Large vintage illustration on cloth, possibly silk, of a woman in trousers, gaiters, and a western style hat, holding a shotgun at the ready, with a game bag slung across her shoulder. Approximately 20" x 22". Upper left corner has what might be some modest discoloration, or might be part of the design of the outline of the clouds in the background, else near fine. Copyright date of 1903 in lower left corner. We have been unable to track this image and are unsure to what use it was put, either as a decorative wall-hanging or as an advertisement, possibly for a gun or ammunition manufacturer. A highly unusual and a relatively early image of a lone woman with a gun in a recreational context. Currently housed in a cheap and not particularly well-fitting frame as we received it, we would recommend shipping it without the frame. .
