Description

Beautiful chromolithograph engravings by Alexander Francis Lydon, a well known English watercolour artist and engraver of natural history. These superb plates come from "British Freshwater Fishes" by W. Houghton. They feature the Pollan fish and the area it is found, "The Wye River." The engravings come ready-to-hang in an ornate gold frame. A special addition to your home decor or as part of a natural history display.

Both prints have foxing (brown spots) with the fish picture far less affected and there is some crinkling of the matt board surrounding the pictures. The colour in the prints is still vibrant and I love that even the flaws add to their rustic, perfectly-imperfect patina.

I have also listed a similarly framed set of engravings by the same illustrator featuring the Perch - there is a discount if you wish to buy both - please contact me: https://www.etsy.com/au/listing/477600150/lydon-chromolithograph-engraving-perch

The frame measures 76cm/30" long, 41.5cm/16.25" wide and 4.5cm/1.75" thick and weighs over 3kg unpacked **

**INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS ITEM IS HEAVY AND WILL BE SENT VIA SEA MAIL WHICH TAKES 3 MONTHS - PLEASE CONTACT ME TO UPGRADE TO AIR MAIL (14-21 working days)

I will parcel up the items and post them within 1-3 business days after payment has cleared in my account. I always try to find the cheapest postage rate that will safely transport the purchased items. Any overcharge will be refunded. I normally use recycled materials for packing so would not usually charge for packaging, but in the event that nothing suitable can be found, I will add the small cost for bought packaging and include this in the postage price for the listing.
I send by regular post but customers can request registered post with tracking if they wish.
