painted two man crosscut saw blade

painted two man crosscut saw blade

Description:

A two man crosscut saw blade that was hand painted upside down by Teresa Summerskill and it was donated by Laura Burden. The painted saw blade depicts seven logging men with some either using two man saws on various logs and others helping out, while another is chopping down a tree with an axe (far right). The colours of the illustration have blues, greens, browns, tan, apricot, white, grays, and orange tinges. The type of two man crosscut saw would be a lance tooth, due to the patterning and shape of the teeth on the blade (pointed ends). On the other side of the saw blade reads "Simonds - Canada Saw Co. LTD. - Montreal - Toronto - Vancouver", the company name that manufactured the saw blade. The company was first found in January 1906 after The Simonds Mfg. Co. bought another company of The Canada Saw Co. located in Montreal, Quebec, and was renamed The Simonds Canada Saw Co. For donor biography see description for 021.10.01.

painted two man crosscut saw

painted two man crosscut saw

Description:

An upside down hand painted two man crosscut saw that was painted by Teresa Summerskill and it was donated by Laura Burden. The painted illustration depicts "folk art". The floral patterning is represented as "rosemaling", or also known as "rose painting/decorative painting", in which it is from Norwegian origin and is a mix between Dutch painting and traditional folk art. It was named "rosemaling/rose painting/decorative painting" since during the 17th to 18th century, various artists painted roses and other types of flowers. The three main styles of this specific folk art are called Telemark, Hallingdal, and Rogaland, named after the regions of where they were formed. This particular patterning on the saw would be Rogaland. Folk art encompasses art produced from an indigenous culture or by peasants or other laboring tradespeople. In contrast to fine art, folk art is primarily utilitarian and decorative rather than purely aesthetic. It is characterized by a naïve style, in which traditional rules of proportion and perspective are not employed. Folk art mainly expresses cultural identity, such as sharing community values, by using various materials of wood, clay, metal, paper, and other resources. It reflects traditional art forms of diverse community groups of ethnic, tribal, religious, occupational, geographical, age- or gender-based, who identify with each other and society at large. The type of two man crosscut saw would be a lance tooth, due to the patterning and shape of the teeth on the blade (pointed ends). The colours used have oranges, blue, yellows, greens, browns, gold, and reds tinges. Both of the metal bits of the handles has "No. 17 - PAT.D 1930" and "Viktor - Canada" written on either side, in which possibly inscribes where the saw was manufactured from.

hand painted two man crosscut saw blade

hand painted two man crosscut saw blade

Description:

A hand painted two man crosscut saw blade that was done/painted by Teresa Summerskill. In the illustration it depicts logger men either attempting to cut down trees with axes or some helping out to lift logs up with machinery, in which there is a logging truck driving away with logs at the back; located on the far right. Judging from 021.10.05 with that illustration having logger men on spring boards chopping down trees while comparing with 021.10.59, more likely it is taken at a modernized setting (1940s or 1950s) where it has machinery lifting up the logs and loading them onto a logging truck. The colours of the illustration have browns, greens, blue, white, red, and teal tinges. The type of two man crosscut saw would be a lance tooth, due to the patterning and shape of the teeth on the blade (pointed ends). For donor biography see description for 021.10.01.
