Junk Shop Finds


I often lament the loss of antique shops, the pleasure of the hunt, the unexpected find. But today was a treat!


Today, we found this! It was a described as a woodblock print, but we suspect it’s a lithograph. It’s quite a good size, at least 60cm square but not in great condition. She has water staining on the edge, but don’t we all? She’s still wonderful.

The print is signed Sikker Hansen ‘40. A quick search finds a Danish illustrator by the name Aage Sikker Hansen (1897-1955) whose other work seems consistent with this print.

We are happy to have found her, it’s like the old days after all! She now lives in our hallway, looking glamorous and bored. I know how she feels.
