Antique Signed Half-Tone Color Engraving 'Mermaid and Sunken Treasure' 1910.
This is the second of two beautiful Mermaid Engravings from the same private collectors album I am listing today. See NN567 for the other.
Entitled 'Mermaid and Sunken Treasure' it is by the renowned French magazine Illustrator Edmund Dulac (1882-1953), and features a beautiful naked, long haired Mermaid diving amongst a sunken treasure trove littered with the bones of drowned sailors.
In half-tones of blues highlighted with rusty pink it is a very detailed and decorative Engraving. One of the best Dulac illustrations I have seen.
Signed lower right it is tipped onto an album backing sheet in mottled blue/grey hand made paper.
Measuring 10 7/8" x 7 3/4" full sheet, the image is 7 3/8" x 5 7/8" and the Antique condition is very good.
