Have Patience, Victorian Era Ink Spatter Over Stencil Drawing

Regular price $65.00

I can't think of a better way to deliver this message; have patience, indeed! The maker of this would have carefully arranged these leaves and hand-cut stenciled letters on top of the paper then finely spattered ink all over; I like to imagine them patiently waiting for the ink to dry in order to see the fruits of their labor, which I find really lovely and rather magical.

13 1/8" x 11 1/16". The paper was folded horizontally down the center, causing the paper ultimately to split; it has since been taped in a few places on the reverse side to hold it together. Framing would stabilize it and should make that split more or less disappear. A little irregularity also the the left edge and small folds to bottom corners. Shipped flat.
