From vintage 1927 US state & world country atlas maps, to vintage birds, shells, ships, & botanicals, check out my selection of vintage prints rescued from old books, found in the "Vintage Prints" section of my shop SeaSeaRider.
This listing is a page rescued from a 1975 book. It is a print of a much older colorful duck with a snake in its mouth called Muscovy Duck. To me , it has a cabinet of curiosities type feel, somewhat shocking with bold colors. The original painting this image came from was done by Maria Sybille, undated but she practiced her art circa 1647-1717. So this is an oldie but goodie.
I love to rescue affordable art from old books as once you frame them, you often can't tell that you paid so little for it. Plus, many of these images are not seen alot today so you have something very colorful, somewhat whimsical, and unique. (Sorry for the sideways shot but I don't have a fancy camera and this was the best way to get a close up of entire page.)
This page measures about 10 3/8" by 14 1/2". Big enough to make an impact if used alone. Image is slightly smaller but it gives you a border to work with if you don't want the expense of a mat. The border is white with the background of the actual image being shades of taupe-gold. The variations you see in the print background are from the original printing as most images in this book have a variated shaded background. The duck with the really upset snack incorporate colors of red , dark and medium brown, green, black, yellow, orange brown, and gold. I am pricing these for less than you could buy a poster for to provide affordable art. Check out my vintage prints in SeaSeaRider. I love the challenge of providing affordable yet beautiful images to use as art in your home! I currently have quite the varied array of prints from the 1940s onward of birds, seashell bookplates, some large gorgeous botanicals, sailing ships (some are detailed mast studies), some small Currier & Ives.
Because this is large and a print, I need to make sure it doesn't bend. Shipping is close to the price I will be selling them for but it still provides reasonably priced art.
Shipping is for MAINLAND U.S. CONVO for HI, Alaska, or OUTSIDE U.S.
Visit my shop for much electic from books, to art, to ephemera, to old shells, to letterpress wood type, to my own original sea jewels & art ,much SEA-inspired, but not all!
Thank you for visiting SeaSeaRider (:
