Rare 1896 May Irwin’s Bully Song Framed Sheet Music Black Americana Davenport


I am pleased to offer this Antique 1896 Framed May Irwin’s “Bully” Song Sheet Music!  This sheet music truly comes from a different era, and was a famous song from the performance “Widow Jones”. 

The song was the signature number of May Irwin, a Canadian actress, singer, and star of Vaudeville.

The sheet music has a very Black Americana cover art by the artist Davenport.  The sheet music was a supplement to The Journal of New York, and is copyrighted April 12th, 1896.

The sheet music is matted in an antique wood frame, and displays rather well for this genre of collectors.

Frame measures approx. 10-3/4″ W x 14-5/8″ H x 5/8″ Deep



This antique May Irwin Sheet music is in good condition for its age. There are two large creases (vertical and horizontal) and some tears along the edges. There is also some light staining to the paper from age.
