A lovely little antique Scherenschnitte (a/k/a scissor-cutting) of two love birds sitting atop a double-handled urn. I've placed the love birds in a period gilt frame where I floated them on red acid-free paper with a small bit of Japanese rice paper. The framed size is 4: x 3 3/8" not including the brass hanging look at the top of the frame. The size of the Scherenschnitte is 2 1/4" x 2". Please remember that you are looking at a greatly enlarged photograph....larger than the actual piece. Circa mid-19th century.
A perfect gift for your favorite Valentine!
