Folk Art Fractur (Taufschein)


A beautifully decorated folk art fractur, (or taufschein).

The fractur, drawn by Martin Lunnifall, documents the birth and baptism of Daniel Nothsfein, born in Northampton, PA on January 17, 1813. The text block is surrounded by flowers, hearts and other fanciful shapes in exuberant colors. The fractur is in very good condition, having been professionally conserved and mounted under glass. This is a wonderful piece of folk art that would enhance any collection.
