Description

Here's St. Peter's Cathedral in Cologne as viewed in 1890

Cologne Cathedral (German: Kölner Dom, officially Hohe Domkirche St. Petrus, English: High Cathedral of St. Peter) is a Roman Catholic church in Cologne, Germany. It is the seat of the Archbishop of Cologne and the administration of the Archdiocese of Cologne. It is a renowned monument of German Catholicism and Gothic architecture and is a World Heritage Site. It is Germany's most visited landmark, attracting an average of 20,000 people a day.

Construction of Cologne Cathedral commenced in 1248 and was halted in 1473, leaving it unfinished. Work restarted in the 19th century and was completed, to the original plan, in 1880. It is 144.5 meters (474 ft) long, 86.5 m (284 ft) wide and its towers are approximately 157 m (515 ft) tall. The cathedral is the largest Gothic church in Northern Europe and has the second-tallest spires and largest facade of any church in the world. The choir has the largest height to width ratio, 3.6:1, of any medieval church.
Cologne's medieval builders had planned a grand structure to house the reliquary of the Three Kings and fit its role as a place of worship for the Holy Roman Emperor. Despite having been left incomplete during the medieval period, Cologne Cathedral eventually became unified as "a masterpiece of exceptional intrinsic value" and "a powerful testimony to the strength and persistence of Christian belief in medieval and modern Europe".

From my personal collection of amazing original antique illustrations of fabulous far away places, I'm very pleased to present to you; 'St. Peter's Cathedral in Cologne, Germany' as it stood in the year 1890.

Cologne was a very different world 127 years ago. There were no automobiles, electricity was still in its infancy and photography was a relatively new and very exciting invention.

For the very wealthy, there were lavish picture books for people to gaze upon... exotic and wonderful far off places around the globe; like the portfolio this delightful 8.5" x 11" illustrated plate came from.

This gorgeous historical photogravure is done on ever so perfect heavy weight paper has just a tiny sheen. It's smooth and clean, without wrinkles or flaws; simply perfect for framing. 'The Cathedral of St Peter' is a gem.

Matted, framed and displayed as a gallery grouping, these fine old architecture prints are simply spectacular. (Please note that the framed examples in the last photo are to show how this might look when it's framed. Your photo print will come to you unmatted and unframed.)

Surrender Dorothy offers an over-the-top array of unusual frame-worthy vintage and antique prints, maps, charts and illustrations of ever description to adorn every room in your happy home.Terrific vintage finds for your workplace too.

Our art inventory moves very quickly and fresh selections are added each day, Please be sure to bookmark us and check back so you don't miss a thing.

I'll send this to you First Class Mail by way of those nice folks at the USPS packed flat and protected in a rigid mailer.

Returns & exchanges

Returns
We are happy to accept returns in good condition in the original packaging shipped within 48 hours as exchanges only and you agree to pay postage both ways.

Damages In The US Mail.
They happen sometimes.
Although we carefully wrap our vintage breakables in tons of bubblewrap and tons of padding and pack them in sturdy shipping boxes, damages still sometimes happen. *sigh*
Please tell us about damaged goods ASAP. Photograph the damages and send photos to us so that we can work it out with USPS.

Shipping policies

We ship by way of the United States Postal Service only.
Yes, FedEx and UPS are a little bit cheaper, but we find them to be very brutal with our delicates and breakables, so we refuse to play with them.

International Orders
The answer is YES we do ship internationally. Please just ask! There are many shipping destinations on this planet and each one is a slightly different price.

Additional policies

While it is considered customary for many antique and vintage shops to consider offers and dicker prices, our shop simply doesn't.
We've priced our merchandise as fairly as humanly possible. Please don't ask us to haggle.
Thank you.
