  1. Wow! So this is one firecracker wrapper? Do you know anything about their production? Thanks for stopping by, you are welcome anytime! Alex

    • The whole wrapper is about 14×18 inches – I’m assuming they were painted by a single artist, perhaps someone else did the embossing – I really need to look into this more!

    • Thanks – It’s actually quite a large piece (about 14 x 18) and extraordinarily detailed, unfortunately not archivally framed (looks like late 19th/early 20th century from the style/construction of the frame and weight of the glass/wood backing) – I really should do a bit more research on it…
