This beautiful depiction of the German stand at the Exposition Universelle is an original steel engraving. It was published in 1856 in the "Illustrierte Zeitung". It shows different German Goods, Inventions and busts of famous German personalities. In the center is a bust of Alexander von Humboldt. It would look even more beautiful when framed in a simple frame.
The Exposition Universelle of 1855 was an International Exhibition held on the Champs-Élysées in Paris from 15 May to 15 November 1855. Its full official title was the Exposition Universelle des produits de l'Agriculture, de l'Industrie et des Beaux-Arts de Paris 1855. Today the exposition's sole physical remnant is the Théâtre du Rond-Point des Champs-Élysées designed by architect Gabriel Davioud, which originally housed the Panorama National.
