Really nice and BIG whirligig on eBay right now, one of Jim Linderman's last folk art pieces, although I suspect he still has a few more choice items that he won't get rid of!
Here's a direct link to the auction.
Already up to $ 255.00...worth a lot more than that though.
Interesting cabinet card that shows a woman that is obviously a performer of some kind.
The upper half of her body appears to be suspended on a trapeze with the bottom half of her body missing. The lady is identified on the back of the photo as, “Leah Hallet.” This name is printed on the mount, above the photographer’s name, Cassilly of St. Louis.
