Gleaned from Sir William Jardine's 1838 volume 'Naturalist Library - Mammalia - Quadrupeds', here is a sumptuous Victorian hand-colored engraving captioned -
Lioness and cubs
The heavy paper is blank on its reverse, measures 4" x 6.5" (10x17 cm), and shows gentle all-over tanning. The paper is smooth and clean, the paper edges are clear and unmarked, with the corner tips only just softened. The hand-coloring is bright and vivid and exact and there are no tears, folds, creases, or marks.
A beautiful subject to frame for your home decor, gift to your favorite naturalist or wildlife enthusiast. Perhaps you'll use in your art - card and tag creations, collage, keep in that ever-growing scrapbook paper stash you adore.
You are purchasing an original 1838 paper and it does not have watermarks. I will send this to you flat, protected, and by USPS 1st Class mail.
