Room 145, Fiddler’s Inn. Matched pair, barrel-wearing figures. Found in Reno, Nevada, roadhouse “The Sit n Drink.” Circa late 1940s. Medium: plywood with applied oil-based house paint. Wear is evident on paint of both barrels, on frame at bottom, on top of woman’s head. Holes on front of barrels are original to barrels and indicate a previous use as actual barrels. Casters on bottom are a later addition. Repaired bullet hole in man’s chest. $8,700
