Comment

Although Henrich Otto decorated identical forms to this one produced by the Cloister printshop, the softened blue, green, and red tones of the color scheme here indicate the work of Friedrich Krebs. Krebs was a schoolmaster whose fraktur work covers many of the heavily German-settled counties in southeast Pennsylvania, although he lived and taught in what is now Dauphin county for most of his career.
