Item:233016421752Circa 1805 White Silhouette Left-Over Cutting by Augustas Day We have a pair of very rare cutting left-over here! Alice van Leer Carrick termed it a "donut hole" or was it "hole in donut" in the 1920s, which makes no sense at all. Some people still use this term today. There was a bit of discussion on my blog dated April 24, 2012, if anyone is interested. At any rate, when hollow-cuts were made these left-overs (the inside of the cutting) were often thrown away by the artists. That is why these left-overs are so rare today. When found they are mostly not attributable to any artists, unless the bust termination is a no-question, published bustline. What we have here are a no-question, left-over silhouettes by Augustas Day. They are on wove paper and measures about 3 inches tall. The sitters are a good-looking young men, a teenagers. Because these left-over exist, there must be their hollow-cuts somewhere. Perhaps they may be long lost but you never know. Wouldn't it be wonderful to find them? The paper are strong, nice and white, save for a very minor spot. There is a crease on one neck, which looks to have been always there. I bet it was there when Day cut it. If you want them facing left, instead of right, just reverse the silhouettes. Note: We deal in authentic 19th century silhouettes. We never mess around with questionable and "wanna-be" silhouettes. Just ask anyone.
