Early American Fraktur

This beautiful piece of American history was painted between the American Revolution and the War of 1812.  It features a historic American eagle and is infused with the hope and promise of young love.

Look at the beautiful angels and the raspberries!  The colors are still vibrant despite 219 years of wear.

I suspect this was a treasured item, tucked away in a closet before it came to Antiques USA.

Last time I checked, it was still on the shelf.
