Wah-ta!-Wah is a beautiful Delaware girl, also known by the English version of her name, Hist-oh!-Hist, which is abbreviated to Hist in The Deerslayer, or The First Warpath (1841) the famous classic book by James Fenimore Cooper.
This is a parlor print or advertising premium print of this Native American woman. She has a a feather in her head band, and Indian beads adorn her native dress making this a beautiful 1908 print. The colors in the figure are subtle and the background has a turquoise sky like appearance. Lightly printed in cursive text near the bottom are the words Wha – ta! Wa and at bottom the Meek Company mark.
Wonderful for the literary enthusiast or those collecting early advertising art. The Meek Company produced thousands of advertising novelties and premiums in the 19th and early 20th century. This would be known as a parlor print. An image we have not seen before. We only have this one.
