Miniature Silhouette of Piano Player Paderewski Baroness Eveline MaydellPlease do review all of the photographs as they are of the actual item you are buying.
Signed silhouette of piano player. This is attributed to Baroness Eveline Von Maydell. Framed in a vintage light colored wood frame measuring 4 3/8" wide x 3 3/4" high. The actual silhouette is approx 5/8" across and about 7/16" high with the signature being under and to the right of the work. I have tried to show the tanning to the papers used in the frame and there is one color advertisement that might help with dating the piece as it was used as a paper backing within the frame.
This piece was purported to have been included in an article about the Baroness with a reference that this might be the smallest silhouette of a famous piano personality. The notation says Paderewski, but the notation is in another persons writing. Unfortunately, I do not have access to the article to corroborate the notes I have on the piece.
I do not have the full ownership history of the piece. I purchased the item from Anthony Steffen - Deceased - of Delco NC. He purchased the item in a storage auction. The prior owner attempted to contact him to acquire her mothers miniature collection back according to the conversation I had with him. Prior to Tony (that is the name Anthony went by) the piece was owned by a Grand Daughter of Elsie Weinstock - name unknown, the daughter of Elsie Weinstock deceased - name unknown - and then Elsie Weinstock - deceased - Milwaukee WI. I do not know where Elsie Weinstock acquired the piece however there was a Exhibition in 1942 by Maydell in Milwaukee.
The note card states: "Cut Silhouette of Piano Player by Baroness Eveline Maydell article about Baroness & a mention in file that this might be smallest silhouette of famous piano personality."
"Padereski" (another person writing)

If there are any notes available on the piece, they will be included above.
