This Abraham Lincoln Mourning Folk Art piece features many hand-painted details, including hearts, vines, and flowers; a hex sign that resembles the rain symbol, as well as a triangle border. In the manner of pinprick fraktur, the piece is highlighted with tiny pinpricks around the border and the painted elements.
It features a composite albumen photo of Abraham Lincoln and George Washington. Surrounding this composite image are the words THE MARTYR/AND/ (image)/THE FATHER rendered in pinprick fraktur.
Certainly from Pennsylvania Dutch country, it features a period frame, wood backing (original?), with minor wear-some would say charmingly distressed!
Very Good, not examined outside frame.
