This unique American charcoal drawing, circa 1800 - 1850, depicts a pair of gentlemen celebrating in a saloon. Suited up in tail coats and top hats, the gentlemen donning an eye-patch raises his glass while the bartender serves his companion. To the left, a third gentlemen passes beneath the saloon's signboard, a rendering of two bare harlots promoting the world's oldest profession. In the foreground, a small bird seeks refuge behind a large spittoon.
The drawing, entitled 'Bygone Days' in lower left, was executed on laid paper, a type of cotton rag or linen paper that has been utilized since the 12th century and was superseded by woven paper in the 19th century. Represented on the opposite side -- a woman in 3/4 profile with her hair pulled back in a Regency style chignon.
Displayed behind UV glass in a fine quality solid maple wood frame
