Notes
Content: Title from folder.
Content: Printed on border: "The good knight, the principal figure in the foreground, has just alighted from his horse, and exposes his palm to two or three of the gypsies, who crumple it into all shapes, and diligently scan every wrinkle that can be made in it… The figure in the background is Addison himself, surveying the scene which his pen was to make immortal." "A beautiful and highly meritorious example of American manufacture in the precious metals -- a branch of art-manufacture only just now rising to commercial importance in this country is seen in the salt cellar… Mr. J. T. Ames, Chicopee, Mass., is the manufacturer and exhibitor of this, and also of the silver gilt wine cooler which comes next in order. The ornamental bronze closk is exhibited by M. M. Duplan & Salles of Paris. In the group of figures Venus is represented emerging from a sea-shell, and two cupids aiding her." Includes additional text.
Source note: The world of science, art and industry, illustrated from examples in the New York exhibition, 1853-1854. (New York : Putnam, 1854) Silliman, Benjamin (1816-1885), Editor.
