Fraktur - Bilt
Early: 1823 - Late: 1823
Detailed picture of two birds probably done for or by either Abraham S. Clemens or his father Abraham C. Clemens. The drawing is of two central birds which are perched on the stalks of flowers, which are growing out of a pot. The birds have yellow beaks, blue heads, yellow and red wings, black tail feathers, and black, red, and yellow lined bodies. The small flowers surrounding the birds are red and yellow, with black and blue leaves. The two tulips above the bird's heads are red, blue and yellow. The text below the birds is blue and red. There is a small border around the drawing made up of slanted green lines between two red lines.
Abraham S. Clemens or his father Abraham C. Clemen
