Description:
LANCASTER COUNTY, PENNSYLVANIA GERMAN WATERCOLOR OF A SMALL PINK ROOSTER WITH A YELLOW HEAD AND COMB, CA 1840-60:

Child's watercolor drawing of a small pink rooster with a yellow head and comb. The work was clipped from a book of schoolwork that was found in Lancaster County. On the reverse, among other text written in a dip pen, is "32 lbs. of cheese". Since paper was less expendable in the 19th century and little was wasted, a younger sibling was probably given this on which to draw.

Size of Parchment: 3" x 2.5"

Size of Bird Image: 2" x 1.75"

Mounting: The work has not yet been mounted. My in-house conservation staff can provide mounting and framing services at an additional cost.

Condition: Moderate foxing and edge wear.
