I bought this tin cutout a few weeks ago and I am still trying to figure out what it could be. It’s large, sick measuring 19 inches long and 14 inches high. As you can see, recipe a lot of work went into the making of this tin cutout. The first thing I notice about this cutout design, was the scalloping on top of the carriage, an extra detail that must have been important to the maker of this wonderful tin cutout. But what is it supposed to be?
The Amish man driving the carriage is married. Did you know that when Amish men marry they grow beards? Single men are clean shaven. I can’t tell if the male in the carriage has a beard, it’s certainly not long like the driver. Maybe it isn’t a beard at all, maybe it’s his chin. They could be newlyweds in a decorated carriage, but I’m only guessing. Could it be that this is an Amish quilt tin used for the making of a wedding quilt? I’m just guessing. I can’t imagine what else you would use something like this for. It’s too large to display as a window tin. So does anyone have any idea what this large tin cutout could be?
I would love to hear from you if you do.
Stay cool. It’s supposed to be 97 tomorrow and 101 on Friday!! Yikes!!
