This is an educational chart showing the different cuts of meat and skeletal system of a pig by E.C. Bridgman, 86 Warren St., NY. It states: Compiled under direction of the highest authorities for use in colleges, institutes, school of Home Economics an by HouseKeepers. It is in very delicate shape as seen in photo, but I think that is what gives it charm. It is cloth back with paper on top. It does have staining and paper loss. I am sure there is a way to preserve it as is to prevent any further damage. This is a rare find for your consideration, which would look great in any country cottage or farmhouse setting. Even mixing it up with the industrial would be great. It measures approximately 41 1/2" by 27"
