    NATIVE AMERICAN INDIAN COWBOY WITH WIFE - FRAMED BUBBLE GLASS PORTRAIT ON TIN - ca. 1900. This is a fantastic and large image of a distinguished Native American Indian and his wife. The man is wearing transitional clothes with a large hat on his knee, and the woman is simply draped in a Native woven blanket. This image has been colorized in the early lithographic style and is also on a tin backing, making it an unusual format. The tin is slightly coming through on the right side of the image, just over the woman's shoulder. It also still retains the original frame made from brass-plated tin, which has some evidence of lead welding at the top for a hanging device. The bubble glass is nicely made and once had identification as to the maker, in the form of a gold sticker, on the front bottom left which has been removed. The image is very large at approximately 14"x 20" in oval form. This is a great transitional Native American Indian image.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
