During the late 19th century, many Americans went to Europe to study painting. This oil on board originated with an old Knoxville, Tennessee family that had traveled widely in the late 19th century. No one in the family had any idea who had done the painting, but their name was Ragsdale and the last initial in the lower right is R. The frame is the original with an almost rope edge on the sides. In the center of the bridge, there are people looking down into the river. The trees are lush with a dark green coloring.
The grouping of flowers and the black edging are extremely detailed and the piece reflects an elegance of an era gone by.
An interesting unmarked Orange shaped teapot probably from late 19th century and German. The lid is missing but the piece is very interesting to see. The color and texture of the orange is almost real. There is some wear to the sides of the orange coloring but for a 100 year plus piece this looks really good.

The Civil War had many tintypes taken that the sitters will never be known. This particular one shows a Union soldier in uniform holding his gun with a bayonet on the end. On his left side may be a small sword and the gold buttons have been painted as an accent. The tintype is dark but the image is clearly visible and there is a decoration painted on the sitters hat. Someone far more familiar with Civil War may be able to identify the regiment of the soldier. The case has one hinge that is damaged and a chip on an edge but is original and certainly useable.
