Folk Art, Marine

Exceptional late 19th century diorama of steam/sailing vessel off Sandy Hook, CT Lightship. Done by the same hand as the tug diorama judging from the construction, date of lightship is circa 1880’s – 1890’s. From a lifelong collection of folk marine art in eastern CT. Purchased from Nina Hellman ( Nantucket ), one of the greatest early folk dealers.
