Fabric Silhouette: Circa 1860
Rare fabric silhouette of a full body male. Done in silk and velvet on wool. Fabric of hat was cleverly chosen to resemble beaver. Initially, I thought this was a needle case but realized that it has no function other than the pleasure of it. Probably done about 1860 but a person more familiar with costume might say earlier. Professionally mounted on stretcher that measures 11" x 14".
