Early SJ Birth Record

Year: 1800-1850

Weight:4 lbs


Early 19th century New Jersey King family Birth record. Large uniquely and finely detailed pen and ink creation. The NJ King family were most likely Quakers Living in Burlington County during the late 18th century. This fraktur type birth record directly relates to another piece I own made for a Gloucester County family although the artist is unknown to me the penmanship is skillfully drawn and the same hand. 20” high x 14” wide approx.. Interesting variety of plants and flowers depicted in great detail. From what I read the two Latin phrases on either side are both plants in the Mint family. I suspect that they have some significant meaning?
