Printed and delicately hand-coloured in Germany in 1889. Hand-coloured lithographs are even more sought after than chromolithographs, which though painstakingly done, are coloured mechanically and not by hand.
This rare +120-year-old hand-coloured lithograph is in very good condition. It is blank on the back. Printed on cream-coloured paper, like cardstock. Frame and give as a very special gift.
