ANTQ PA FRAKTUR- BIRTH CERTIFICATE - HAND COLORED-1834
- Source: eBay
This is a very nice early PA birth certificate- fraktur-hand colored and printed by Blumer, Allentown , PA. This is dated as the birth is 1834. This piece is all written in German script and is difficult for me to decipher. I can read that a daughter was born on the 29th day of September, 1834. I cannot read the township- the first word is Upper and it looks like the second part starts with an S but I am not totally sure, There is also a note below that I can decipher- it is in German aand says that she died on the 5th of March, 1850- she was 15 years, 5 months and 6 days old. This measures 16 1/2 inches by a 13 1/2 inches and has some tape on the back- some very old and some newer. The colors are nice and it is well painted by hand. This has some wrinkles and some roughness along some edges but is really a nice early piece. Again, this is from a very old collection. Buyer pays shipping.
