Cut Paper Urn

Mid 19th Century


This attractive picture is created from cut paper and depicts a double-handed Grecian style urn with sprigs of delicately cut flowers.
It is sympathetically presented in a later giltwood frame.

The art of paper-cutting was fashionable at the Court of King George III whose daughter Princess Elizabeth was an ardent cutter. Tiny sharp scissors and pointed quill knives were used
to cut the paper with great delicacy.
