Pin prick and watercolor Taufschein dated 1830

21-145. Pin prick and watercolor Taufschein (Baptismal record) fraktur dated 1830. Specifically, it is referred to as a Patenbrief (A prayer / blessing over a child at baptism”).

This Patenbrief was made for Katharina, no last name given, baptized in the “Envangelisch Lutherish Kirch”, with no location given. Probably continental. I listed it as probably Continental because these Frakturs were often produced some years after the actual baptism. Hence the place where the artist made them is not always apparent. Good strong colors. Appears to have it’s original glass and frame. Although not signed, this piece is stylistically related to Fraktur #21-173. It measures 11” x 9.5” overall. Good condition with minor foxing and toning.
