Set of 4 Antique Victorian Ornithological LithographsSKU: 3888 by InteriorBoutiques
An absolutely stunning set of four antique Victorian ornithological lithograph prints. These were printed by Waterlow and Sons around the 1860-1880’s.
We are unsure of the artist, but they are superbly executed and Waterlow and Sons were very prominent wood engravers in Victorian London, so they were most certainly by someone of very high skill and repute.
The subjects are all incredibly beautiful with gorgeous colours and detail. Each lithograph depicts different species of birds, plants and insects, with the Latin names printed below.
They are framed in amazing faux bamboo gilt wood frames, all are in excellent condition for their age. There is just some very slight discolouration to the white backgrounds here and there, seen in the images.
