Maine Folk Art – Lion Cub on Board


I just adore this little lion cub painted by a Maine woman on a rough board… she was downsizing and moving to Florida and just didn’t have enough room to take it with her. (She did hesitate at first but ultimately decided to part with the piece.)  The second photo shows her signature, which is on the bottom right, below the cub’s butt.

Condition:   An excellent original piece of Maine folk art.  The hanger on the back does needs a small nail.

Price:  Just $12.00 at Heritage Collectibles.  Plus the standard 5.5% sales tax, of course!

Location:  Undercover Antiques Mall, Route 26, Oxford.  We are booth #56.

NOTE: Now that we’ve downsized at our main location, our new entrance is at the back of the building!  You’ll see some signs in the windows saying “Heritage Collectibles”, “Retail Shop” and “Welcome”! 

 If our OPEN flag is up, come on in!  (The door is rather industrial looking, but we’re warm and cozy inside!)

Thank you to everyone who has supported us for the past four 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, 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.]
