Rare Henry Williams Silhouette


When I first saw this silhouette, I thought it was the same example that Carrick illustrated in her book. Upon closer examination, there are some differences with the detailing of the hair. This is also from Conestoga Auction Company.

We no longer consider those silhouettes stamped WILLIAMS to be the works by Henry Williams. This silhouette here seems to be period and more likely done by Doyle. WILLIAMS stamp is NOT from the 19th century but 20th century. For more on this subject, see 1/10/2012 posting.
