 Portraits of the Fry Family, Volume One

5 John Fry...

  

   

 

   

This the oldest example of "Paper Cutting" found in Volume 4.

 

Reproduced here at approximately full size, it is cut from white paper and mounted on a blue paper background. Presumably, it would have been cut with a very sharp blade.

 

The 'M' has been slightly damaged and the number 2 is partly folded over, otherwise it is in very good condition.

 

It was cut by Mary Storrs, wife of John Fry of Sutton Benger, in 1723.
