Scolopendrium LIV Antique Print: Fern Chromolithograph from 1854-75.
This old Fern Chromolithograph was published in England from 1854 through 1875. The study included all kinds of ferns known during that period. Common and exotic species. Almost appearing as a pressed Fern, many people are surprised to find out they were not pressed. They were actually produced by an antique printing method known as Chromolithographs. A Chromolithograph, Chromo meaning color, lithograph, meaning printed from limestone. Each and every color scene was applied with its own individual limestone slab. Keystone just for that very color.
Each old Fern print measures 6″ x 9.5″. The colors are intense. The condition is very good. These antique prints of ferns are modestly priced at $30. Each. Scolopendrium LIV Antique Fern Paint.
