Member1 Posted April 30, 2014 Share Posted April 30, 2014 One of the most amazing pieces Eric Pearson made was his set of dueling pistols, a number of these exist but we have no idea how many he made over the years or how long he offered these. My guess is he made them in the 1950's and 60's. A while back I had the opportunity to study two of them side by side. These were owned by the museums in Kansas City (left) and in Maysville, Ky. (right) The interesting thing is they are the same piece but different in size and finish. Eric Pearson offered the same pieces for a long period of time, as in decades for some pieces. I once studied four of the same secretary, They were all built as individuals or from different batches. There were very few dimensions that were the same. I wish we knew about how some of these early artists worked? If anyone has one of these sets please let me know and if you have any information on Pearson I would love to know more. I have talked to few people that visited his shop in New York City years ago. BTW For those that don't know Pearson was one of the first, if not the first to make his living selling fine miniatures to adults. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
