The Lord's Prayer | Sheaff : ephemera

The Lord's Prayer

Engraving on glaze coated card stocck, ca. 1865. Tiny engravings of The Lord's Prayer were in vogue at the time, 
and demonstrate incredible craftsmanship in execution. In this case, some of the highly flourished lettering is difficult to read,
especially "The Lord's Prayer" around the outer border, and "Amen" at the bottom.
The entire prayer is repeated in the center in extremely tiny type, in a circle 5/16 of an inch in diameter.
Engraved by E. A. Teulon of Boston, printed by Abbott, Jenks and Company of Manchester, NH.
