Seller: ditsyvintageartdeco (1,027) 100%, Location: Bristol, Ships to: GB & many other countries, Item: 113715688849 This is a unique carded linen paper document or handkerchief wallet tied together by ribbon. It has been handpainted and depicts a native American couple. The inside is silk and there are some tears and signs of age on the inside. The painting is titled "A ............ Courtship". This is why I imagine the folder was made to store cherished love letters. A very rare and unique item reflecting American history. The genre is black Americana and I have deliberately not shown all of the words on the painting as I find the missing word extremely offensive. Ditsy vintage does not share or condone the use of words which are offensive and insulting towards people's race or colour. One corner of the card has been bent and one of the ribbons has been pulled off but is still there. I cannot be sure of the date it was made, however from my limited experience of textiles, fabric and costume I would say the date is between 1780 and 1830. But equally could be Victorian. Any questions please ask. Provenance: Ownership History Not Available, Subject: Love
