Antelope Wildebeest grazing Africa 1854 Chardon antique color animal printAntiqueMapsPrints.com
(Antelope- animals in wild)
Issued 1854, Paris by Chardon.
Beautiful mid-19th century engraved print with exceptional original hand color, heightened in gum arabic for a particularly nice sheen.
A genuinely scarce mid-19th century natural history image.
An actual antique, vintage printed sheet of paper -- not a modern copy or reprint.
Sheet remains notably well preserved but shows light signs of age as does all paper this old. Excellent and unique antique image with a nice age patina.
Sheet measures c. 11 3/8" x 7 1/2"
