A fine example of early American folk art. Generally classed as fraktur type, paintings such as these were done by children, and were often, as this one was, painted on a page from a ledger or notebook. This particular piece is a charming depiction of an eagle, and is housed in a period frame with good surface.
The painting is in very good condition, with good color, and no tears or creases. It does have some very common spots of discoloration which might well have been there since the painting was done. The frame is in excellent condition. Sight size of the work is 4 3/4" by 3 1/2", with the overall size being 8" by 7".
