Here's a magnificent pair antique chromolithographs from Bean's "Fishes Of Pennsylvania" printed in 1892. Chromolithography was a method of color illustration subsequent to stone lithography and hand coloring
and preceding photo-offset color printing. It was the "state of the art" in realistic color printing between about 1875-1900.
The prints have been mounted in acid-free rag mats with a bookpaper-wrapped inner mat. They are framed in a 2-1/2" low-gloss black lacquer wood frame with an speckled gold inner filet.
The prints are photographed without glass to prevent glare but will be shipped with glass. They measure 14-1/2" by 17-1/2" overall.
