Wonderful scherenschnitte patriotic eagles with shield in red, white & blue. Eagles are nicely mounted on blue background and double matted on red and white. Housed in a simple painted white frame without glass. The paper cut-out has some discoloration from the adhesive, the shield also has some discoloration and the frame has 2 edges that have separated slightly (please see pictures). The actual scherenschnitte measures 5"h x 7"l and the overall framed dimensions are 15.5"h x 17.5"l.

Scherenschnitte means "scissor cuts" in German and is the art of papercutting design. The art work often has symmetry within the design, and common forms include silhouettes, valentines, and love letters. The art tradition was founded in Switzerland and Germany in the 1500s, and was brought to Colonial America in the 1700's by immigrants who settled primarily in Pennsylvania.
