Antique Religious Poem, Two Worlds, Newman, Illuminated Calligraphy:
I had purchased this at sale in NJ from a Manhattan estate.
The piece is a poem from John Henry Newman,
Newman was an author and a Catholic cardinal and theologian who was an important figure in the religious history of England in the 19th century.
This is a hand written piece done in calligraphy with highlights of illuminated areas down with a gold flourish.
The text is from Newman's poem called “Two Worlds,” which I fully typed in below from a book I saw on line.
The frame is gold, the matting off white.
The calligraphy seems to be on parchment or sheepskin.
The frame measures 12” x 15”.
Frame is in nice condition.
The calligraphy ink has faded to brown.
In some places the fading is quite pronounced.
Please review the photos.
