|Antique Authentic Daniel Peterman
Pennsylvania Dutch Folk Art Fraktur
Authentic Pennsylvania Dutch fraktur hand-wrought by famous folk art master Daniel Peterman (1797-1871). This is a work commemorating a baptism ceremony for Juli Anna Peterman, born in 1775 (the actual baptism may have occurred somewhat later than that as Pennsylvania Dutch Anabaptists are baptized in adulthood, or Peterman may have made this much later as a gift to a family member -- possibly his mother). Whatever the mystery between the 1775 date and Peterman's birth thought to ccur in 1797, this may well be the earliest known work by Peterman. The fraktur was attributed by Pook and Pook Estate Appraisers in Downingtown, PA. Fair to Good condition, showing creases and losses, as pictured. The frame is modern.
