Heart in Hand

Unusual small framed Odd Fellows heart in hand symbol painted in gold leaf on paper and laid on fabric. The fabric may be silk.  The artist painted in a shadow which creates the illusion that the hand is elevated slightly above the background.  The frame appears to be original.  There are some small creases in the fabric that could probably be eliminated by stretching it, but we decided to leave that decision to the buyer.  It displays very well as is.  Circa late 19th century.  Frame measures 9” by 6 ¾” and the sight size is 7 7/8” by 5 1/8”. (CI-34)
