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

Child's watercolor drawing of a small orange, pink, and purple bird, looking skyward. The work was clipped from a book of schoolwork that was found in Lancaster County. The name John Haverstick appears at the bottom, accompanied by a tally of numbers appears both at the top and on the reverse side of the parchment. Since paper was less expendable in the 19th century and little was wasted, a younger sibling was probably given this on which to draw.

Size of Parchment: 3.75" x 3.5"

Size of Bird Image: 1.25"

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.
