well worn heart
well worn heart - the original "play" of this game unfortunately has been lost over time... it is believed that it may have been a game that was used to "court"... perhaps a young girl was trying to guess which date a suitor may call?
perfect as a gift, wedding, anniversary, valentines....
16 x 19" c. 1880's
dedicated to my husband, clarence
the original piece was auctioned for over $18,000
this picture was taken outside of my studio....it was a beautiful cloudy day....the first photo would be more accurate color inside with dimmer light....if you have a bright area in your home, this picture would probably be more accurate.
