Newport Harbor Ornament
Custom glass oval ornament measuring 3 3/4" across and 3" tall that hangs on silver stain ribbon. Ornament features close up of a James Nicholson's 1888 painting of Newport Harbor. Each ornament comes packaged on a navy greeting card for one to write a message inside.
Nicholson, a self-taught painter, immigrated to Newport from Scotland and worked as a master joiner on several summer cottages. This image of Newport Harbor beautifully illustrates a typical day in Newport's working waterfront of in the late 1800's, including the Eolus, a steamship which brought thousands of visitors to this city on the sea.
