Mushroom Study chromolithograph print Circa 1888

This beautiful mushroom study is likely from a German encyclopedia of the 19th century filled with chromolithograph prints. This process of printing was used from 1855 - 1905 and requires each color represented in the image to be applied on a separate plate. The colors layer translucently upon each other. This one is called Agaricus PH Lebophorus and is plate 1422. The mushrooms are golden, brown and cream on a background you might call mushroom...or taupe. The paper is 5 3/4(w) x 9, but the print itself is 4 1/2 x 7 1/2. The print is free from creases and stains, excellent in condition. The white part is lightly yellowed with age. I am listing four of the prints.

Combined they will make a wonderful grouping for the study or kitchen!
