19th C. Homemade Christmas Ornament

A homemade Christmas ornament of a woman reading a book while sitting in a rocking chair.  It's made with a lithographed image, tulle, paper lace and embossed paper and foil trim from Dresden, Germany.  There is loss to the trim and tulle as would be expected from use.  A rare survivor, it's descended through a Maryland family.
