This is a great folk art painting of an angel that has remained as colorful as the day it was done. It was done on the inside of the front cover so it has never been exposed. The cover measures about 6 x 4 inches. The angel figure is 2 3/4 inches tall and pretty much the width of the book. I assume that the name beneath is from the original owner. As you can see my photos , this book completely in German, is a catechism based on Dr. Martin Luther's teachings. It was published in 1874. Included with the book is a piece of paper in a variety of penmanship styles. Oddly enough, tongue twisters have been written on this paper. These are written in English. This is a fabulous piece of early folk art in good condition. Please feel free to request more photos or to ask questions. Take a look at my early dolls also. Thank you for shopping at Red Dog Dolls.
