Description:
LANCASTER COUNTY, PENNSYLVANIA GERMAN WATERCOLOR OF A SMALL BIRD ON A TWIG, CA 1840-60:

Child's watercolor drawing of a small orange bird with a pink head and wings. The work was clipped from a journal found in Lancaster County. Various pen strokes appear elsewhere on this side of the parchment and a tally of votes appears on the reverse. Since paper was less expendable in the 19th century and little was wasted, the child was probably given this on which to draw.

Size of Parchment: 3" x 3.75"

Size of Bird Image: 2.25" x 1.5"

Mounting: The work has not yet been mounted. My in-house conservation staff can provide mounting and framing services at an additional cost.

Condition: Minor foxing.
