This offering is for an antique 19th century school girls folk art portfolio or booklet. The artist is identified on the cover with her name written in fancy period ink "JENNIE RUMBOLD". 8" by 10" and it contains 19 artworks on 10 pages with all of the pages except one having a work on each side.There are folded colored paper works of stars, cross, pinwheels etc. And a couple of punched paper embroideries. There are also eight coated colored paper works that were made by inter weaving strips of contrasting paper in geometric designs. They remind me of quilt patterns of the era. The condition is amazing with the original thin onion skin papers still in place to separate the works and no rips, tears or repairs. The cover has a minor fold on the bottom right hand corner by that is the only real flaw. If additional photo's are needed or you have need of answers to questions we do not address we will be happy to supply them. WE USUALLY SEND OUR INVOICE WITHIN 1 HOUR OF THE AUCTIONS ENDING.
