These weird old German dictionary prints offer so many crafty possibilities and are just too much fun!

This very cool original double-sided illustrated page is from a 1890 antique English/German illustrated dictionary published for Mennonite and Amish children at the end of the 19th century; twelve weird and nifty little engraved images printed on each side.

I've been holding on to this collection with the intention of using these cool 2" x 1.5" images to make domino/poker-chip pendants and key-fobs with them, but so far I haven't done that yet, so I'm offering them here to you for you to do something fun with them.

This 7.5" x 10" page like the others in this series, is in well-loved condition with a lovely soft and even light tanning and the usual spots and finger smudges one find on antique paper that's 121 years old; in other words, it's not new and certainly not perfect.

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

Surrender Dorothy offers a non-stop jaw-dropping cornucopia of frame-worthy antique and vintage prints, drawings, sketches, plans, lithos, engravings, posters, maps, charts and illustrations of all kinds to adorn every room in your happy home. Terrific finds to gussy up your workplace too.

Our entire inventory moves in and out of here very quickly and fresh selections are added each day, Please be sure to bookmark our shop and check back to visit us often so you don't miss our latest discoveries.

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.
