Vintage Reverse Painted Color Curved Glass Silhouettes

A great and unusual pair of vintage silhouettes.  As shown, this original matching pair of reverse painted silhouettes on convex glass features polychrome decoration of a young girl in 1940’s attire.

In one silhouette, she sits at a writing desk with a long pen quill in her hand, dressed in a long pink dress with green trim at the bottom and a green bow in her hair.  A pair of silhouettes hangs on the wall just behind her.  This silhouette has a small nip (at about the 3:30 mark) of the exterior edge paper that wraps from the back.

The second silhouette shows the same girl seated at a piano, paying from sheet music with music notes aloft in the air.  Interesting, she wears a long green dress with pink frill and a pink flower in her hair.  There are seven silhouettes that hang on the wall in an arc over the piano.  This silhouette has lost some of the edge black paper wrap at the nine o’clock position and a significant amount at the 12-1 o’clock position.  In addition, there is a fold in the satin at this position.  This may look like a crack in the photo, but it is not in the glass, but the background.

Each silhouette measures just under 6” in diameter.  Really a beautiful and unusual set.
