About this Item

Circa 1880s. Collection of six 5 1/2 x 3 3/4 inch oval bust portraits in Victorian Era decorated mat and wooden frame. 33 x 9 1/2 inches overall. Some scuffing of the portraits, adds to the antique look of the piece. The subjects of the portraits are the "Fireside Poets" - William Cullen Bryant, Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr., Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, James Russell Lowell, and John Greenleaf Whittier - along with Ralph Waldo Emerson. The Fireside Poets were a group of popular American poets whose work was accessible to the average reader and was read around the fireside by families, hence the name. Ralph Waldo Emerson was a very popular author also, known more for his essays than his poetry. Bookseller Inventory # 016599
