Vintage Bird Print - Antique Original F W Frohawk Foreign Finches 1899 Print
Black-Headed Manikin (113-years-old)
White-Headed Manikin (male & female)

This is a scan of the actual chromolithograph you will receive. (113 yrs. old)

*PLEASE NOTE*: Some of the scans make it appear as if the paper is rippled. It is not.The rough edge that was bound tightly causes the paper to have a slight wave. If you trim the rough edge the paper will lie flat. It looks rippled in the scan because the raw edge is not lying completely flat on the scanner bed. The light picks it up and makes it appear as if the paper is rippled. Once matted and framed the paper at the raw edge will be covered or trimmed and the paper will lie flat behind glass.

I'm pleased to have finally found a second set of these exceptional antique bird chromolithograph bookplate prints by F. W. Frohawk. They aren't easy to find at affordable prices. Frohawk published this series of prints in 1898. The prints I'm selling are from the 2nd edition of Foreign Finches published in 1899.

F. W. Frohawk (1861 - 1946) was an English zoological artist and lepidopterist. He was one of the most noted ornithological artists of the late 19th and early 20th century. His ability to capture the beautiful color and intricate details of the birds is amazing. This series display beautifully, especially in a group. The full page print measures about 7 inches X 10 1/4 inches and will fit nicely in a standard frame.

*CONDITION*: The plates are in very good to excellent condition. I see no foxing or marks on any of them. A few show a little wear but nothing significant. The photos show true condition. They are in very good condition and photos do not do the colors or quality justice.
