Old paper cut


Had to post a photo of this beautiful paper cut out. It belongs to Rachel and it looks to be an illustration of some kind, maybe for a nursery rhyme or fairytale. Its probably Victorian, as cut out was a popular hobby for women back then.....still is now! I think Snippety gibbet will appreciate this one. Have a look at her blog, she has some lovely paper cuts.

Thank you for the mention! I do love that cutting. Is it an illustration for the Bremen Town Musicians? Here's a Wikipedia link for the story: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Town_Musicians_of_Bremen
