Here is a handsome 1895 engraving gleaned from Reverend Francis Orpen Morris's epic work, "History of British Birds", compiled and published in England at the direction of Queen Victoria.
The heavy, captioned paper is top tipped in gold, blank on its reverse, and measures 6.75" x 10" (17x25 cm). The paper is smooth and clean, the engraving is strong and clear, and the hand-coloring is bright and vivid. There are no creases, folds, marks, or tears.
This is a timeless engraving for you to frame for your own home decor, a delightful gift for your favorite bird watcher or duck hunter; perhaps you will use this in your art - card and tag creations, scrap-book page making, collage; a wonderful addition to your ever-growing but never large enough ephemera stash!
You are purchasing an original 1895 paper and it does not have watermarks. I will send this to you flat, protected, and by USPS 1st Class mail.
