Primitive Fraktur 19th Century Jefferson County, PA West Liberty Clearfield County Collection Jim Linderman Folk Art
Detail only from a dated 1883 Fraktur drawing (with letter on reverse) from a gent to his wife. The portion shown is 1/4 of the piece, which is drawn throughout entirely in red and blue. Both parties are named, the piece is signed and I am researching the maker. "F L T" stand for "Friendship Love and Truth" a motif which is repeated. The piece also has an applied Victorian scrap affixed (surrounded by embellishment) and other decoration. A good find. Things ARE still out there.
