Hampton Todd BULLETIN OF THE PENNSYLVANIA MUSEUM JULY. 1918 SIXTEENTH YEAR Number 62 ANNOUNCEMENT By the time this appears in print the leave of absence of the Director, Mr. Langdon Warner, will ha\'e extended over more than seven months. As our readers are aware, he went, in December of last year, to the Far East, under an arrangement between the Smithsonian Institution and this Museiun, for the purpose of prosecuting archseological researches and acquiring objects of art for both institutions. A few extracts from his letters will show that he has not failed in his quest and throw some interesting side-lights on the state of affairs in the land of our Eastern Allies. He went from here direct to Tokyo, whence he wrote, on February 6th, to Mr. Mcllhenny: "The market in Japan for certain classes of objects has been ruined, from the point of view of the purchaser, by the wild rush for objects of art on the part of the new munitions millionaires and by the consequent speculation on the part of the dealers. While this state of things has quieted down now it has left the prices in some cases several hundred per cent higher than they were before the war or even during 1915. "Luckily for us, the things most in demand by the Japanese are not what we most need. For instance, I saw, two days ago, a small incense box of late Ming Celadon which was worth in China perhaps ten yen, yet having been in Japan for two centuries and having been owned successively by three great tea rnasters, it brought no less than thirty-five hundred yen. Paintings, too, which, having a long history of ownership by distinguished amateurs, are valued quite apart from their beauty; especially fine things with no such associations or else recently imported from China, can sometimes be secured at prices not at all unreasonable. "So far I have gotten hold of one Chinese stone head dating from the first T'ang Dynasty or from the Sui, perhaps the last quarter of the sixth century A. D. or the first of the seventh. It is perhaps the best example of that period that has come out of China and in perfect condition. "Among the Chinese stone heads that I know there is an earlier one m New York that is remarkable for its attractive patine and delicate cutting, and 36 BULLETIN OF THE PENNSYLVANLV MUSEUM one of the same period (so-called Six Dj^nasties) in Cleveland, which is, or almost, equally important esthetically and considering it is one of the few in the manner of the early years of the period; only these two can compare with ours in interest. I am also trying to land a certain big stone figure of great importance. "I have further found, but not bought, a small piece of lacquer of the Genroku period, perhaps of the first quarter of the eighteenth century, in the style of Korin. Of course, I do not know positively it is by that master, but have convinced myself that it is of his period. "Among the University crowd are some of my old friends and with them I spend a good deal of m}' time. Even the best of them are so remote from the war and its issues that they are lul<:ewarm. You take their lack of enthusiasm for Pro-Germanism, but, on the whole, that is unfair. German atrocities do not come home to them so effectively as German efficiency, and, back of it all, I suspect that the Japanese shipping interests have suffered from British supremacy as traders on the ocean and imagine that a German victory might leave room for Japanese ships. In this they are surely wrong and there is no doubt that they will find it out before things have gone too far. "For the moment Japan is full to overflowing with Russians who are trying to get into America or who are leaving their cotmtry till times have quieted down. Many of them are poor and have become a public burden; the others flock to the hotels, where they are not a very desirable element. "I am living in a huge bam of a place, the Station Hotel at Tokyo, and confess that I do not like my first experience of living in Japan in foreign style. I am on the lookout now for a small house to move into in order to save money and be freer, but rents are high and small houses rare in Tokyo ; also I find that meat and milk and sugar are treble in price, in three years, and all cost more than they do even in London. Even the common foodstuffs of Japan have risen so much that the burden on the salaried class is almost greater than can be borne. The laborers, of course, make more than ever before in the history of the country. "There is a chance of my making a small side trip to Formosa before long, but I fancy that the material to be gotten out of it will be more in the line of what the Smithsonian wants than the Pennsylvania Museum. The stuff is aboriginal art and craft; some of it is of great interest and considerable beauty. "Please tell everyone you meet how much the American ambassador is appreciated over here; he makes a singularly happy impression of frankness and ability, and the Lord knows that just those particular virtues are most needed in our relationship with Japan. I have heard him make two or three good s]jeeches and have met him socially several times. He is by far the best man they have sent, the best in my fairly long experience of Japan, and the old residents here say that he is the best that has ever come over." In March Mr. Warner went to Manchuria in hopes of doing some archse- ological work for the Smithsonian Institution and of using his influence to save the small but important and valuable collections housed in the museums of the cities along the Trans-Siberian Railway from damage at the hands of riotous mobs. Surprising as it may seem, these cities, which seem to us so BULLETIN OF THE PENNSYLVANIA MUSEUM 37 remote and to our imagination semi-barbarous, have museums, public libraries, opera houses and all the equipment of the most modern civilization. The museum at Irkutsk is unique in its own line, and there are several others of almost equal importance. He found it impossible, however, to get beyond Manchuli, a station at the point where the borders of Manchuria, the Trans-Baikal province of Siberia, and Mongolia come together. At this strategically important position, he found that the line had been cut a few versts beyond the station and a small force of loyal troops was attempt- ing to stem the eastward advance of the Bolsheviki and protect Vladivostock with its valuable military stores. Under these conditions archaeological work was pretty nearly, if not altogether, impossible, and he returned to Japan. Mr. Warner was then asked by the United States authorities to go to Harbin to help relieve the enormous pressure on the consular office there. The daily papers keep us informed of the fact that Harbin is at the moment one of the storm centers in the Far East and we must reconcile ourselves to a temporary, though, let us hope, brief, loss of our Director's services, trusting, as we may be sure he does, that he is helping to win the war. In the middle of April he left Tokyo, going first to Peking and thence to Manchuria. POTTERY AND PORCELAIN FROM THE EDWIN A. BARBER COLLECTION PRESENTED BY MR. FRANK SAMUEL Owing to the kind interest of Mr. Frank Samuel, a selection of nineteen pieces belonging to the private collection of the late Dr. Edwin A. Barber was obtained for the Museum at the sale of his collection on December 11 and 12, 1917. The series contains choice specimens from different French, English and Italian factories, as well as examples of porcelain from the earliest factory of purely American porcelain, established by William Ellis Tucker in the first quarter of the nineteenth century. From France is a fine tureen of stanniferous faience with floral decorations, from Niderviller, of the Beyerle period 1754-1780, which is a particularly fine example both in form and detail. The soft green of the relief decorations of fruit that form the top of the lid and the rose and other bright shades of the clusters of the flowers are especially attractive. The faience of Niderviller in Lorraine, or Niederwiller, as it is sometimes called, shows strong Strasburg influence. Baron de Beyerle opened a factory at this point in 1704 and his wife, being a true artist, looked after the art side of the undertaking. They decorated both in flowers and landscapes, the latter of which were set as might be a paper on a background in imitation of grained wood. Another specimen of French manufacture is a Toumay paste plate redeco- rated outside the factory and made up to pass for Sevres under a forged mark — a curious piece. Toumay is usually included among French wares, as during 38 BULLETIN OF THE PENNSYLVANIA MUSEUM a, " o 2 ft H o en ^ H CD eg g < o H CO ft 2 M tu BULLETIN OF THE PENNSYLVANIA MUSEUM 39 X < ^ U Ah O -£ P-i ^ BJ C 3 40 BULLETIN OF THE PENNSYLVANIA MUSEUM the period when its porcelain was famous it was under French dominion. The first soft paste porcelain made there was by Peterinck in 1750 and such was his success that in 1762 two hundred and fifty workmen were employed. At a later period the influence of Sevres becomes apparent. From Italy a cup and saucer of Docia ware, which Dr. Barber described as artificial soft paste porcelain, goes back to the period extending from 1770 to 1800. The greater number of specimens, however, are of English manufacture — Tin Enameled Pottery Soup Tureen. Niderviller, France. Beyerl^ Period, 1754-1780. specimens of Spode, Chinese Lowestoft of the late eighteenth century. Staff ord- .shire 1825, Liveqjool c. 1809, etc. From Worcester, one steatite paste plate with bird decoration dating from about 1775, and another of natural soft paste with armorial designs in color in the center and gold wreath around the border, c. 1800, are interesting. A series of products from the earliest American factory of hard paste porcelain from 1825 to 1838, which had been loaned to the Museum by Dr. Barber, was also secured, this purchase completing the Museum's o-rni collection. BULLETIN OF THE PENNSYLVANIA MUSEUM 41 William Ellis Tucker of Philadelphia when he established his factory had no knowledge of the composition of porcelain, nor of the processes of its manu- facture, neither had he any assistance from others. But with new untried materials, in a few years of experimental work he succeeded in producing a material substance which in every respect equaled the best products of Europe. Analysis has shown the body contains about eight per cent of phosphate of lime, a much smaller proportion than is found in the English soft paste, although Tucker's porcelain cannot be classed in the soft paste category. Its specific gravity and thoroughly vitreous character were regarded by Dr. Barber as entitling it to be called a true hard paste porcelain which it more nearly resembles. Fire tests made by Prof. Isaac Broome, to whom Dr. Barber sub- mitted specimens, proved that the Tucker porcelain could stand a higher degree of heat than the Se\Tes porcelain ware of the same epoch. From 1816 to 1822, Benjamin Tucker, father of William E. Tucker, had a china shop in this city! at No. 324 Market (then called High) Street, above Ninth Street. There he built a small kiln where his son was able to paint the imported white china, firing it in the kiln. These first attempts at decorations at first were crude, but they interested him and led him to further ventures. He began experiment- ing with different clays which he got from the neighborhood. This resulted in time in the production of a fairly good opaque queensware. At this point, he turned his attention to kaolin and feldspar, and after much experimenting he finally discovered the proper proportions of these ingredients to use with bone dust and flint necessar}' for the manufacture of a high-grade porcelain. It was in 1825 that he began using this ware in trade. The old waterworks at the northwest comer of Schuylkill-Front (Twenty-third) and Chestnut Streets were obtained from the city and the kilns necessary were erected. Then, in 1826, he purchased four acres of land and Alexander Dixon's feldspar quarry in Newcastle County, Delaware, and from this time until 1828 continued the manufacture, entering into partnership with Hulme and, in 1832-38, with Hemp- hill. The Museum is now in possession of a fairly complete collection of this pioneer manufactiire of porcelain on this continent. S. Y. S. ELECTRIC LIGHT IN THE MUSEUM Among the improvements which the Park Commission is making in Memo- rial Hall in connection with the construction of the new Children's Museum, which is being arranged in the basement, the installation of the most modern system of electric lighting is perhaps the most noticeable. Not only will the Children's Museum be lit in this most satisfactory manner, but the Pompeian Room, with the great model of the Centennial Fair Grounds, the cork models of famous European buildings and the reproductions of the ruins of Pompeii, all so dear to Philadelphia youth, has been already illuminated in a way which makes all these features vastly more visible and removes forever the blasts of hot and mephitic air which made one pant for a gas mask as one descended into this subterranean "dugout." 42 BULLETIN OF THE PENNSYLVANIA MUSEUM Far more important is a similar installation in the basement galleries con- taining the Frishmuth Collection of Colonial relics illustrating the home life, customs and domestic crafts and industries of the early settlers in Pennsylvania, founded and continually added to by Mrs. Wilham D. Frishmuth. It is extraordinarily rich in objects of the highest interest to students of our earlier history and antiquities and its value to those who seek for any reason to recon- struct that bygone period is well nigh inestimable. Formerly it was inadequately shown because of the limited amount of light pro\'idcd by the few gas fixtures available. Now, the electric light perfectly illuminates every comer and the collection is for the first time visible in its true value. This lighting, together with that in the new Children's Museum, has been installed under the direction of Dr. Edward P. Hyde of the Nela Research Laboratory, Cleveland, probably the highest authority in this country on the subject, who most generously gave his valuable advice and services free of charge to this Museum. When the Children's A'luseum is finished and opened, a new passageway connecting it with the rooms containing the Frishmuth Collection will make access to both easier, provide a perfect circulation through this part of Memorial Hall and conduce greatly to the comfort of the visiting public. SCHOOL NOTES. The School of Industrial Art has pledged itself for much patriotic work. The recent Third Liberty Loan drive carried out by an organization of repre- sentatives of the thirteen classes of the School, with Robert Paul Marenzana as chairman, set $12,000 as a goal. This being immediately reaHzed, various advances were made until the close of the campaign, when $74,000, or more than six times the original goal, had been secured. The total of the War Savings Stamps sales was $2,563. The total of the Belgian and Armenian Relief Fund was $520.10. To this has been added the French Orphans' Relief Association, to which the students are responding well. Supplying coast patrol, mine sweepers, tankers, and merchant marine training ships (on which our own boys are serving) with books, games and victrola records, has been undertaken by a committee of students of which Miss Marion Hengst is chairman, and already a considerable number of the craft has received these gifts. \ The significant design painted on the first float of the Democracy Parade was executed at a few hours' notice by Messrs. Copeland, Ege, Warwick and Smnock, with the assistance of two of the pupils — Lambert and Walton. A letter afterwards received from the committee having the parade in charge stated that this float was considered the finest design for the parade. ^ __ BULLETIN OF THE PENNSYLVANIA MUSEUM 43 The Alumni Business Bureau has received over seventy requests within the last six weeks for students to do drafting, lettering and tracing in the various government and other establishments doing war work. Besides this a demand has also arisen for women workers, as they have been found particularly successful in the more delicate joinery, and several of our women graduates have accepted positions at League Island, where the Naval Air Craft Factory expects to employ for the summer months between twenty and thirty of our undergraduates at a salary of from |80 to $100 a month. The Dupont works, Wilmington, has made a similar offer for ten students. Several members of the first-year class have been employed by the Pennsylvania railroad at an initial salary of $75 a month. Their actual training here for this work was less than thirty^ days. Other members have been chosen to supervise the selection of material and construction of war equipment. It is proposed to establish in Philadelphia a school for Occupational Therapy, and the School of Industrial Art has offered its building, equipment, and so far as possible its faculty, to assist the government in training teachers who will also be given hospital experience so that they (under proper military discipline) can take their places in the hospitals established by the government for the crippled and disabled men coming from the front, and help in their recovery by means of this Occupational Therapy which has been found to produce such wonderful effects upon the body and mind. No amateur or volunteer aids are to be used in this work, and only those professionally trained are to serve. This organization is only in unshapened stage, but is expected to reach its full development by early autumn. An effort is also being made to collect field, marine and spy-glasses for the Navy, where they are greatly needed. There is work being done at the Naval Hospital, and already forty-five of the girls from the classes have enlisted for farm work, many of them already being on the soil. The poster and other forms of illustration relative to war matters, has been of great interest to the students, and they have distinguished themselves by what they have done along these lines. Arrangements to have this School assist the National Security League in spreading their propaganda "Patriotism Through Education" have been made by Mr. Ege. To further this movement a free course in "Patriotic Training Work for Teachers" is offered during the summer session of the School. The course will comprise eight lectures and discussion based on the League's "Hand- book of the War." It is intended to give a proper understanding of the place of the United States among the nations ; and particularly on the causes, progress and desirable outcome of the war. The study of the hostile acts committed against us by the German govern- ment and the kind of future to which we shall have to look forward in the event 44 BULLETIN OF THE PENNSYLVANIA MUSEUM of a German victory, will be the circumstances considered for our participation in the war; German war aims, practices and their menace will he analyzed; the problems of the government considered ; the duty of every American citizen expounded; and comparisons between the German plans for the world in the future, and plans of the Allies discussed and criticised. This study of the great war should inspire and arouse every teacher to action in instilling patriotism in the youth or children in his or her charge. Several thousand announcements were sent to the schools in Philadelphia and vicinity, as this was the only school selected by the National Security League in this part of the state. The work will be under the direction of Mr. Wanvick. Also, by arrangement, the " Teachers National Sen,nce Bulletin, " issued by the Committee on Public Information, will be distributed to those enrolled in the "Patriotic Training Course." This publication aims to interpret to teachers, and through them to the children under their charge, high ideals of American patriotism and the privileges and obligations of American citizenship ; to serve as a clearing house for the interchange of plans, suggestions and successful experiences relating to war service work in the school, and to direct attention to more important articles and publications which deal with war activities in relation to the schools. We have also promised to aid the National War Savings Committee by distributing bulletins ]3repared for teachers and discussing the need of saving food, materials and labor. The closing of the School was marked by several special incidents which are of interest to the members of the corporation. The prizes for which there were no competitors (owing to the students comjjosing the classes having joined the Service or engaged in war material production, drafting, etc.) were given by the donors to the wounded soldier funds — some in Italy and some in France. These were as follows : Mrs. John Harrison's prizes in memory of her brothers — Charles Godfrey Leland and Henry Perry Leland ; Mr. Thomas Harrison's prize in memory of Mrs. Harrison; Mrs. Joseph F. Sinnott prize; Mrs. Jones Wister prize; and the Girls' Industrial Art League prize; to which sum the graduating class added a substantial contribution. This not only encourages the committees having the development of these funds in charge, but is of great help to the student body in justifying its efforts to aid these undertakings. Miss Eva S. Ahrens received three honors which were considered rather remarkable in consideration of her having been totally deaf since infancy. Just how this would necessarily interfere with her perception of color and good form is not clear, because the School has already had quite a number of deaf students who have distinguished themselves, both in the School and afterw-ard, BULLETIN OF THE PENNSYLVANIA MUSEUM 45 as art workers and teachers in institutions for the deaf. It has not been found that the elimination of one sense necessarily dulls others, but very often seems to lend acuteness to some of these. Miss Ahrens was awarded the M. Theresa Keehmle Scholarship by the Alumni Association; the Elizabeth Duane Gillespie Third Prize from the Associate Committee of Women; and honorable mention in the Herbert D. Allman Prize competition. The School in its history of forty years has had a considerable number of students with physical handicaps, some having but one arm, some but one eye; quite a number have had only one leg, and some have had no legs, and there have been various forms of crippling, but in no instance has there been any evidence of diminished natural power of mind or slackness in effort due to these Special prizes amounting to $35 offered by Mrs. Joseph T. Bailey for the best designs in color for Christmas cards, were won by Miss Hettie E. Wenzel, who received the First Prize of $20, and Miss Blanche Camero received both the other two. In response to a very earnest request from Miss Deborah Weisel, Instructor in Art at the State Normal School, Johnson, Vermont, for an exhibit of our school work, the Exhibition Committee of the Alumni Association is sending representative examples in lettering, interior decoration, original designs for carpets, fabrics, furniture and book covers; also nature studies, out-door sketches and posters. The exhibit is to bring before the summer classes of the Normal School the professional opportunities offered by a practical art training. Miss Weisel is a graduate of this School and has held several important posi- tions — from general supen,nsion of whole districts to such special work as that of which she is now in charge. She was among the members of the Alumni making foreign study in 1914, when this plan for traveling scholarships was inaugurated ; and has lectured and written upon the subjects she particularly investigated. The School has received the following gifts : From Mrs. W. W. Gibbs, of the Associate Committee of Women; 40 volumes for the Students' Library in the Alumni Room, including a very fine copy of the Encyclopedia Brittanica in 23 volumes. From Mrs. James Mifflin, of the Associate Committee of Women: a wrap — Persian character — of rose colored velvet for the Costume Class. From Mrs. Jones Wister: a variety of beads and belt ornaments for the Costume Class. From Miss 0. Bachmann; a collection of carved tortoise shell. From Miss Edith May: two bronze Serbian and Rumanian commemorative medals made in France. From Mr. F. Lewis: one Ives "Kromskop;" portfolio— Muybridge's animal locomotion; quiver of Indian arrows. 46 BULLETIN OF THE PENNSYLVANIA MUSEUM During the past School year pupils of the second and third sections of the Interior Decoration Class have entered the competitions in Design for Mural Decoration, issued monthly by the Beaux-Arts Institute of Design of New- York. The subjects have been as follows : 1 . A Decorative Border for the wall of a court room. 2. A Tapestr^^ — "The Three Fates" — for the decoration of a drawing room. 3. A Decorative Overmantel for a Library. 4. A Lunette — "Charity" — for the hall of a public building. 5. Decoration for the Apse of a small Romanesque Church. 6. Decoration for the wall of a Monumental Loggia. 7. A Metope in Mosaic. 8. A Frieze in Sgraffito for a museum building. 9. A Decorative Ceiling for a room in an Astronomical Observatory. 10. Decorative Painting for a Triptych in the green room of a theatre — " Comedy, Tragedy and the Dance. " 1 1 . Decoration for the Vestibule of the Morris High School in New^ York. A problem for actual execution. The last two problems after the close of the School. The class as a whole scored in mentions 6Al4 points, making a showing far in advance of any other school. Carroll T. Lambert made a score of 14^2 points in nine problems and had good prospects of winning the cash prize and medal offered by the Beaux- Arts Institute of Design for the highest score for the season. Unfortunately he will not be able to enter the last two competitions on account of registration for the service on June 5th, his twenty-first birthday.
