****************************************************************************************************************This item ships from Germany.

The listing is for a original vintage mid-century pull down biology school chart. It is entitled "Wasserfrosch" in German (this translates to "Water frog" in English). The poster features a stunning outline of a frog, with bones shown in neutral colors surrounded by black.
The wall hanging is printed on paper and backed with linen. It has black metal dowels on the top and bottom end. It was printed in Germany by Volk und Wissen Volkseigener Verlag Berlin, likely during the 1960s.

This type of poster was originally used as a teaching tool in classrooms throughout Europe. Such posters are becoming harder and harder to find.

The poster is in very good vintage condition. There are a few ink marks from a ballpoint pen on the top of the poster (detail Photo 5) -- the price has therefore been reduced. The metal rod on the bottom has a slight dent in it in the back (near the center), which can be seen in Photo 4 -- the dent does not affect how the print hangs on the wall, and when back of the poster faces the wall, the dent is not at all noticeable. The poster rolls up and can be tied with the two black strings attached to the top rod (detail Photo 4)

This frog print would make a stunning addition to any room, and would not only serve as a beautiful wall hanging but an interesting conversation piece.

Width (paper on linen): 115 cm (45.3")
Width (metal dowels): 123 cm (38.4")
Length: 80 cm (31.5")

We are happy to provide additional photos upon request!
