Pennsylvania Fraktur Heart


This design, 'Pennsylvania Fraktur Heart' by Kathy Barrick features the highly artistic and elaborate folk art created by the Pennsylvania Dutch, named after the Fraktur script associated with it. Most Fraktur were created between 1740 and 1860, and Kathy Barrick has pulled this inspiration into this lovely red heart design.
