Sprinkling Sambo Yard Art Folk Art All Original Black Americana Painted Metal From the very top of the item to the lowest point where it pokes in the ground is about 33.5 inches. From his left shoulder to where the hose extends out is about 23.5 inches. There is damage to the paint on his right eye extending past his ear to the brim of his hat as shown. There is pint wear on the reverse area near that hat brim as shown. Piece has some weight to it and is very well made and sturdy. I plugged this whimsical piece to the hose and sure enough “Sprinklin Sambo” works fantastic with no leaks whatsoever , a nice fluid tight stream of water running through the hose and dispersed in a 5 light stream pattern like a flower. This item IS ALL original down to the hoses and again is very well made. Notable areas of where to piece are again wear to the front paint of the face and the reverse back brim area of the hat as shown. Gaskets, hose, everything here top to bottom has that very old 1940s? All rivets and construction on here is great and there are NO STRUCTURAL ISSUES….. NO SUPRISES when you open up the box to wellcome this charming fellow from days gone by into your home. Lastly , because I took him outside to test him out he is a little dirty. Item will be considered in good vintage condition… Far better than many other similar pieces.

Fell in love with this painting more than 20 years ago in an antiques shop, long before I knew anything about folk art or ever heard of AMMI PHILLIPS. When we moved shortly thereafter, the newspaper article attached to verso detached and we never saw it again so dont remember what all it said because that was 14 years ago. In the interim, saw the famed Girl in a Red Dress with Dog, considered a folk art masterpiece, and came to appreciate this work even more. This girl, wearing a red necklace with her dress, is somewhat more adorable than the Phillips girl, and in this work you also get the cat she cradles. I just noticed it is not perfect but is very good. Hard to say the exact size of canvas but it seems to be approximately 19 x 16 while the beautiful frame is approximately 29 x 24. Evidently folk art is a passion of Millennials. The item “VINTAGE AMERICANA FOLK ART GIRL IN RED DRESS DOG & CAT AFTER AMMI PHILLIPS $1.7M” is in sale since Friday, May 3, 2019. This item is in the category “Art\Paintings”. The seller is “mys-trees” and is located in Imperial, Missouri.

The artist at some point in her life was employed by the man’s parents as a housekeeper which during that time period in America this was a fairly common form of employment. It looks to be a typical small town. When I walked into the game room as soon as I peered at the painting it captured my attention much like how most of us crane our necks as we drive by an accident on the highway. It is just hard not to look. The artist according to the man ended up in some kind of asylum or institution later in her life before she passed. This qualifies as one of the more unique pieces of art that I have brought home. Measures approx 45″ inches tall by 39″ inches wide including the framework, which is approx 3 inches wide.

This is a Fabulous Americana Folk Art Antique 19th Century Oil Painted Head Cloth Rag Girl Doll in Calico Dress 28 Inch. I have had a few of these Americana folk art painted head cloth rag dolls over the years and I always marvel at the beautiful rendering of the hand painted facial features, hair, hands, feet and eyes that give these gals such a distinct glow about them. This tall 28 inch doll was beautifully made from cotton muslin, and rag/cotton/something-crunchy stuffed. Her folk art hand painting continues to her neck and upper torso. She was treadle machine sewn and hand stitched. She has mitt hands with opposing thumb, well defined fingers and toes, a well proportioned body (one arm a little longer than the other), jointed at the hip, knee and shoulders so she can sit, and she has some aging, staining and wear to the fabric as you would expect of an antique cloth doll. The shoulders have some restitching/repair work. Her oil painted face and hair were hand painted and beautifully rendered. The whites of her eyes were never painted. There is some wear to the paint and three fabric splits (one to the left eye and two to the chin). Along with her blue eyes, she has a realistically painted nose, flesh color skin, delightfully smiling heart shaped mouth, bright rosy cheeks and a molded chin achieved through sewn darts. Her facial structure fabric was gathered around the top of the head, and dark blond brush-stroke painted curls define the hair. The pink and white print calico dress is not original that I know of, but fits her very well. It was treadle machine sewn the wrist cuffs have been pinned to fit the wrist better so that her hands can be viewed. She has no underthings, but wears a white lace trimmed dimity apron so that her waist and form are defined. I always marvel at the hand painting and like to think that artists or itinerant artists possibly painted the heads for these dolls. They look so much like portraiture of the period. More photos are available upon request. LAWAWAY OFFERED, PLEASE INQUIRE. LAYAWAY AVAILABLE, PLEASE ASK.
