Original, beautifully detailed and coloured vintage offset lithograph of charming and spectacular birds, printed in 1955.

The Ruff, Philomachus pugnax is a medium-sized wading bird that breeds in marshes and wet meadows across northern Eurasia. The Ruff is a long-necked, pot-bellied bird. The male is much larger than the female, and has a breeding plumage that includes brightly coloured head tufts, bare orange facial skin, extensive black on the breast, and the large collar of ornamental feathers that inspired this bird's English name. The female and the non-breeding male have grey-brown upperparts and mainly white underparts.

The size of the print (in inches): 9,8" x 6,7" (25 x 17 cm)

The print is in good condition and the paper shows its age with a creamy patina, perfect for framing.

Concerning the age of the paper - cca. 55 years - some spots can be occured on the margin and the reverse side, but these do not effect the quality of the lithograph itself as it can be seen on the scan.

Please note, that by antique prints due to their age some imperfections are to be expected.
