Buzza Motto – House by the Side of the Road by Sam Walter Foss – 1897

$189.00

The House by the Side of the Road framed motto has all the bells and whistles. Every aspect is original, the frame, glass dust-cover paper and the prized large brass CLOVERLEAF hanger engraved with BUZZA, the publishing company. The frame itself is in excellent condition. It was purposely crackled aging it perhaps due to the wide skirts and tall hats. Also, original is the dust-cover paper and the much sought after brass CLOVERLEAF hanger embossed with BUZZA, the publishing house. An added bonus is a circular, gold foil label from the store who retailed the motto. It reads, From the Holt Art Store Artistic Picture Framing Gifts 742 Broadway Tacoma.

It you appreciate poetry and like Mr. Foss verse, then consider purchasing this Buzza Motto. It truly is a find!

This Buzza motto is a reverse painting on glass.

It reads:
“Let me live in a house by the side of the road. Where the race of men go by,
The men who are bad as I. I would not sit in the scorner’s seat
Or hurl the cynic’s ban; Let me live in a house by the side of the road,
And be a friend to man”

by Sam Walter Foss, known for his inspirational poems.

HOUSE BY THE SIDE OF THE ROAD is printed on the reverse side of the glass. It is an art form consisting of applying paint to a piece of glass and then viewing the image by turning the glass over and looking through the glass at the image. Another term used to refer to the art of cold painting and gilding on the back of glass is verre églomisé, named after the French decorator Jean-Baptiste Glomy (1711–86), who framed prints using glass that had been reverse-painted.

Created by The Buzza Company Minneapolis U.S.A. by arrangement with Lothrop, Lee and Shepard Co. From “Dreams in Homespun” Copyrighted 1897 Lothrop, Lee and Shepard Co.
