This is an antique Germany Announcement of a Baby Boy. The envelope contains a poem in German. The pillow is silk baby blue with old paper foil type cut out. I have never seen anything like this. The poem is signed with a quill pen. The envelopes flap is unattached. It is in great condition for its age. The Poem is intact because it was safely sealed in this envelope. It measures about 5 inches tall and 3 inches wide. I cannot read German so I will do my best to write what I think it says. wo die flared Sternlein thronen, Walten Engel lieb und gut, fubren gern die lieben Kleinen, Halten fie in truer hut. Schau, der Engel eilet fiuchtig Durch den zarten Bluthenhain, und fein handchen weift dich bittend in das gotteshans hinein. Unfwarts fuhrt der weg zum ziele und der engle zeigt hinan moge dir lieb kindchen bluhen segen auf des lebens bagn. (where the flared Sternlein enthroned , sway angels good and kind , like fubren the little ones , keep in fie Truer hat . Look, the angel hastens fiuchtig The delicate Bluthenhain , and finely handchen weift up pleadingly into the God hands . Upwards leads the moge away the goals and the Angel shows you ascend fond kindchen bloom blessings on the life bagn .) As you can see my German is bad. I apologize for that.
