~XVIII Precious Stones & Minerals Chromolithograph ~ ORIGINAL antique 1880

This is one of the prettiest in the series of original old hand coloured German prints of 132 years old that I have currently in stock. Filled with specimens of turquoise colours! You will see many crystals in this one! It was originally from a publication called Illustrierte Mineralogie" by Schuberts and wow, what a long life it has already had! I have provided photographs and also a scan (image 2).
PLEASE NOTE this one has a small tear on the left hand edge (see image 4). The tear will not show once framed and does not impinge on the print at all. These prints are very very old and so it is to be expected there will be minor indications of their age. I'm amazed they have lasted so long and to still be so lovely!

Printed by J. F. Schreiber
Eßlingen bei Stuttgart
Germany,1880. Handcoloured.

What I love is how LARGE this item and how beautiful are the precious stones, gems and minerals (and crystals) portrayed. This is something you will rarely see. The large size is unusual. This item is a chart worthy of any wall. NOT for craft purposes! An item to collect, enjoy and keep. The detail is tremendous! If it is not purchased at this price I will keep this treasure for myself!!

This is an ORIGINAL ANTIQUE (not a modern reproduction) and so there is only one available, however I have others of this series available and am adding them to etsy currently. To see others available in the series..
