Childhood Porcelain Portrait of Otis Seligman

by

Arthur Scott

 

   This portrait of my dad at age three was a 1901 Christmas present. It is inscribed on the back "From Franc(Seligman) to Arthur (Seligman), Christmas Dec. 25, 1901." The porcelain, aproximately eight inches long,  is signed  S. R. Twitchell 1901. (Not the NM Historian). Based on other pictures of the period, there was a lot f artistic license taken on this. However, it is possible it was photo-based.
