"A Star and Two Horses"


Those who created Pennsylvania German folk art shared a common love of form and color. Much fraktur was a commercial endeavor, therefore patrons wouldn't buy ones they didn't like.

Thus a fraktur like "Two Horses" contains a Star in the middle which in the scriptures is a symbol of Christ, yet it is framed by secular decoration of bright red rearing horses.

Single card with envelope $3.00; assortment of 8,or all 1 design $15.00. All cards are blank inside.

Original 8x10 watercolor and ink on paper available: $425.00
