Shipped with USPS Priority Mail.Antique German Silhouette Picture . 10"12.5".Suitable for framing. Very beautifully crafted. Unframed. Excellent condition. No tears or creases. 1920's known artist. Famous for her silhouettes.This artwork is a lovely example of scherenschnitte, which is a German word for the art of paper cutting design. Executed by hand with scissors and signed by prolific artist Eva Schonberg in Berlin in the 1920s, this incredibly intricate and finely done black paper cut-out depicts a young woman in vintage German dress, holding flowers, in a rural background including birds and clouds flying overhead and a villagebe. Schonberg's distinctive signature, consisting of an open pair of scissors and her printed name, is at the lower right of the cut-out. This is a wonderful find for the admirer of vintage scherenschnittes. *The word 'scherenschnitte' literally translates in English to "shearing cuts," while 'scherenschnitt' (without the final letter e) translates to "silhouette." Scherensnittes have many open cut-out areas, some breathtakingly fine and narrow, while silhouettes typically are solid paper outlines, occasionally with a few details scissored out or painted on.
