These are taken from Owen Jones' Grammar of Ornament, the bible of design. They were printed from the original stone plates in 1868 by Bernard Quatrich.
The Persian style is interesting as it differs from the Arabian and Moresque in that it incorporates animal life. There is liberal use of gold and silver inks which does not show in the photographs.

These chromolithographs are in very good condition and my photographs do not do them justice.
The type is clear and black and the borders are consistently clean and just off-white
They measure 9.375" x 13" and would look glorious framed. Perfect for the person interested in their heritage or the serious collector.
All these sets come with the accompanying descriptive pages.

Any questions please do not hesitate to ask.
Thank you for looking.
