Colorful, Folk Art Double Silhouette

Northeastern, ca. 1830's. Hollow-cut silhouette double-portrait on laid paper, embellished with watercolor, gouache, and graphite. The paper with crease between profiles indicating that it was likely folded over in a book or drawer for many years, protecting the colors that remain vibrant today. The pretty young woman in blue puffy-sleeve dress, her hair pulled up into a comb, both fashionable in this period. The gentleman with high-collar shirt, puffy-sleeve coat, and blue-plaid breast coat that complements her dress. Handsomely presented in a stenciled gilt frame, the frame about 9 inches long x 6 1/2 high. A vivid example that demands attention.
