Untitled (?) – Baby Seal by Maine Artist Carolyn Folsom, 1980

Art - Baby Seal 2 Art - Baby Seal

I wasn’t able to find much about Carolyn Folsom via a quick internet search, although she appears to be well-known in the Bangor area.

Here’s what little I did find: she spent her childhood in Northern Maine in the 1930s and 1940s, she apparently lived in Millinocket at the end of WW II, she taught art, and she was/is married to Clyde Folsom, a storyteller.

This pencil drawing of a baby seal is just lovely and totally sweet, and is signed by the artist and dated 1980. The matting is well done, as is the frame, although the latter has suffered some minor dings over the decades.

Condition:  Excellent although the frame has some minor dings.

Dimensions: about 26″W x 22.5″H

Price:  $95.00.  Maine State Sales Tax of 5.5% applies.

Location:  This item can be found in our shop at 189 B Main Street in Lewiston.  (The entrance is at the back of the building, off Park Street.)   We apologize but because of the demands of my social work job, we’re only open (most) Saturdays and by appointment at this location.

***************

NOTE:  With the exception of books, maps & music, most of our antique and other inventory can now be found at one of the great antique shops or flea markets listed here:  https://heritagecollectiblesmaine.com/details-hours/ 

We hope you will enjoy our booths at those locations as you did our shop on Main Street.

For those dying to check out the revamped Heritage Collectibles, Books & Maps, we are still in the same building, but our new entrance is at the back of that building.  You’ll see some signs in the windows saying “Heritage Collectibles”, “Retail Shop” and “Welcome”!

Just turn off Main Street in Lewiston onto Park Street and park in the first available parking spot.  The entrance is through the door at the end of the building on the right hand side.  You’ll see signs in the windows (“Retail Store” and “Heritage Collectibles” and “Antiques” as well as others; you’ll also see my silver Jeep Liberty parked there.  You’ll also see our “Open” flag flying!

Thank you to everyone who has supported us for the past three and a half years!

*****************************

In memory of my beloved husband John K Snyder… 20 Sept 1956 – 21 Oct 2016.
He loved our shops, especially the section we called Heritage Books, Maps & Ephemera – that was his baby.

He loved me like crazy, and oh how I loved him.

Follow our blog at https://warrior-project.org, in honor of my husband, and all others who have been lost to internal demons that in the end, overwhelmed them.

All of the profits after expenses from Heritage Collectibles, Books & Maps will go to help fund The Grief Warrior Project, a suicide prevention drop-in and counseling center in the process of being developed.

(Please Note: The Grief Warrior Project is in no way intended to be reflective of, or piggy back off, Wounded Warriors which serves those military personnel wounded after September 11, 20o1.  Like too many others, John was a warrior long before then.)
