It was a dark and stormy night! The fairy sees the ship in peril on the high seas and quiets the waves, guiding the shop safely away from the deadly rocks. The night so dark, the sky without stars and the ocean waves crashing on the rocks but the ship is now safe - darling!
Amelia Jane Murray (English, 1800-96), a Regency lady with a lovely talent and wonderful imagination, sketched dozens of faeries and sprites - for her own and her family's enjoyment.
Those drawings, sketches, and watercolors stayed in her family for 4 generations, never seen publicly, until gathered in 1985 when they were presented as a book for the world to enjoy.
The heavy paper measures 7.5" x 9.5" (19x24 cm), shows only light tanning along the edges, and there are no tears, creases, marks, or folds. The sweet lithograph image is "framed". A delightful image to frame, for your own home decor, for your little one's reading corner - wonderful for your art - tag and card creations, scrap-book page making, collage.
You are purchasing an original 1985 paper and it does not have watermarks. I will send this to you flat, protected, and by USPS 1st Class mail.
