Antique 19th Century Egg Print Hand Colored Skua


Out of stock

Original Antique Chromolithograph Print, a collectable book plate which was taken from a dis-bound Victorian Natural History book.  The exquisite 1850’s print is decorative, beautifully detailed, printed on medium-weight, cream colored paper, blank on the reverse, hand colored. Fabulous bright, clear colors as lush and beautiful as the day they were printed and painted by hand. 

Both eggs {Buffon’s and Richardson’s Skua} are gorgeous in their shades of golden yellow, brown and blue green. To be expected in prints of this age, there may be a few characteristic areas of foxing etc., this print is in beautiful antique condition. Perfect to frame, loves the company of others. Display in a grouping, these egg prints make a stunning statement!

  • Measures about 10-1/4″ x 7-1/2″.
