The red banister, gold carpeting, and teal lighting fixtures are brilliantly contrasted by the ornate black railings, taupe ceiling panels, and pale yellow scrollwork accents…entitled “Wohn u. Geschaftshaus in Wien” (Residential House & Shop in Vienna, Plate #88), it's an incredible document of Viennese interior design!
We recently acquired a collection of old architecture prints from the Brooklyn Public Library, mostly European, and all stamped with the library’s name. Many of the prints are over 100 years old, and despite widespread edge chipping and trimming from the original size by library staff to fit their binding, most are in exceptional vintage condition.
This original chromolithograph measures approx. 16.5 inches tall [42cm] and 12.5 inches wide [32cm] and is printed on heavy ivory cardstock with a semi gloss finish. There is edge wear, especially to the right border, and very faint toning from age. Otherwise in beautiful condition and ready to frame!
Please note: the red border you see in the photos is the library folio; the print’s border is ivory all the way around…
Perfect gift for architecture enthusiasts, fans of Rococo & Art Nouveau design, and lovers of opera!
