My offering for your bidding pleasure and amusement, an Original Paper Cutting from Dove Grey Cottage. This cutting measures 8 1/2 by 11 inches and depicts a lady Witch in her corn field wearing a pretty paniered dress made of antique book papers. I have hand cut this design from a piece of tea stained parched paper.... aged to replicate the early cuttings...it is what's know as a "Hollow Cut" meaning the design was drawn and then the background detail has been cut away. I have ever so lightly given this picture a wash of my watercolours. It is signed and dated and mounted on lamp-black paper ready to be framed, she is available in the shop. Thanks for looking.
