Offering a charming FOLK ART Antique 1816 GERMAN wedding congratulatory card. This lovingly handmade card has a charm all it's own. The card features a die cut cupid placed over gold dresden ferns. The date '1816 was scissor cut with colored parchment type paper attached to the back.
My favorite part of the card are the hand drawn pencil illustrations. On either side are depictions of the couple which have again been cut with colored parchment showing through. Also illustrated are depictions of the couple sledding, and building a snowman. You need to study the card front and back to appreciate the time and thought that went into this lovely card. A ribbon was added to hang and admire.
Beautiful for display, as is, or framed.
Measures approx. 4.75" x 3.75"
