Description

**Shadows are due to my camera. Light was natural, no flash. Colors are portrayed as closely as possible.

This is an original, antique, authentic, printed color lithograph. I do not sell reproductions or modern/digital reproductions. Exceptional as decorative, historic framed pieces for the home. These plates are exquisite examples of Art Nouveau style.

From the rare, ornamental design book Dekorative Vorbilder by Verlag Julius Hoffman, produced in the first part of the 20th century. This is from an ex-library collection that was to be discarded by a college library over 50 years ago, rescued by my father and only recently unpacked. Has university library embossing stamp in corner.

Date: Volume XIV (14), printed in 1903.

Plate 26: Circus; Von Professor G. Sturm

Georg Sturm (German, 1855-1923)

Size of page: 9.75" x 13.75"

Colors: Gray, green, mustard yellow, black; matte cream stock

Subject matter: Circus with clowns doing acrobatics, a female lion/tiger tamer, woman equestrian

Condition: Excellent overall antique condition. There is some light tanning around the edges and bumped/creased edges/corners/tiny edge tears (see photos) and some smudges slight folds at edges, but this would typically be covered by matting. The center of the print is very clean and the colors are vivid. Printing lines are crisp. Embossed stamp as noted in notes and photos.

Plates may be combined in the same tube. Shipping is the same for up to 5 plates.

Overage will be refunded after transaction per shipping policy. International shipping available.

Antique item, sold "as is". Ships in one-to-two business days.
