Clifden Blue Butterfly [Lycsena adonis]
Here is a lovely, hand-colored engraving gleaned from Reverend Francis Orpen Morris's 1876 Victorian entomology volume and featuring three views of the 'Clifden Blue' butterfly.
The heavy paper is blank on its reverse, measures 6.5" x 9.5" (17x24 cm), and shows little tanning since its protective cover remains attached. The paper is clean and smooth, the engraving is strong and clear, and the hand-coloring is bright. The paper has no creases, folds, marks, or tears. A timeless image to frame and gift for your favorite butterfly lover or perhaps you will use in your art - card and tag creations, scrap-book page making, jewelry creations, collage.
You are purchasing an original 1876 paper and it does not have watermarks. I will send this to you flat, protected, and by USPS 1st Class mail.
