John Zinck - Birth record for William Kulb
John Zinck - Birth record for William Kulb, 1832
Union County, Pennsylvania 1832 - In a period painted frame. This birth record by John Zinck is a classic Pennsylvania-German fraktur of a unique type that is instantly recognizable for the design incorporating a formally-dressed couple flanking a block of text inscribed in English within a rectangular border, and painstaking and precisely drawn figures, flowers, and birds. This particular example, with its use of vibrant reds and blues ranks among the very best known examples of its kind.
Stone-Carved Wooden Presentation Box

 

Rare Stone-Carved Wooden Presentation Box, 1820 or earlier
Maori People, New Zealand. This highly unusual presentation or small treasure box comprises a humanoid or zoomorphic figure as the support for the box. The head emerges from the base of the box, and the lid or cover rests on the base almost carapace-like. Overall, this is a fine and very rare example of earlier Maori carving with a little-known form.
