From my personal collection of amazing original antique illustrations of fabulous far away places, I'm very pleased to present to you; 'The Brandenburg Gate in Berlin, Germany' as it stood in the year 1890.
Berlin was a very different world 123 years ago. There were no automobiles, electricity was still in it's infancy and photography was a relatively new and very exciting invention.
For the very wealthy, there were lavish picture books for people to gaze upon... exotic and wonderful far off places around the globe; like the portfolio this delightful 8.5" x 11" illustrated plate came from.
This gorgeous historical photogravure is done on ever so perfect heavy weight paper has just a tiny sheen. It's smooth and clean, without wrinkles or flaws; simply perfect for framing. 'The Brandenburg Gate' is a gem.
Matted, framed and displayed as a gallery grouping, these fine old architecture prints are simply spectacular. (Please note that the framed examples in the last photo are to show how this might look when it's framed. Your print will come unframed..)
