Original Antique Black & White Steel Engraving of poultry, so perfect in any French Country decor! Absolutely charming, and so very decorative. This print is from 1810 and was taken from a disbound book of the Encyclopedia by A. Ress. If you love animals, in particular chickens, Silkies and Bantam Cocks, this is a rare treat! Bought from my very favorite print dealer in England.
Prints with roosters and chickens are so avidly collected, and for good reason, they are lovely, can actually be a pet, and lay eggs! Aging as shown, all the prints from this book were cut at the top. When you have matted and framed, they are fabulous addition to your collection. Display this in your office, family room, hallway, or anywhere where you want to show your love for country fowl!
- Measures about 10-1/2" x 8-1/4"
