Vintage offset lithograph of mushrooms.

Geastrum quadrifidum, commonly known as the rayed earthstar or four-footed earthstar, is an inedible species of mushroom belonging to the genus Geastrum or earthstar fungi. G. quadrifidum is a cosmopolitan, but not common species of Europe, the Americas, Africa, Asia, and Australasia. The fungus is a saprobe, feeding off decomposing organic matter present in the soil and litter of coniferous forests.

Geastrum rufescens, commonly known as the rosy earthstar is a species of fungus in the family Geastraceae. It was first described scientifically by Christian Hendrik Persoon in 1801. It has a pale pinkish-buff to pinkish exoperidium and rays. The earthstar is found in Europe, North America and Japan, where it typically grows at the base of old oak stumps.

The size of the print: 10,6" x 7,5" (27 x 19 cm)
Printed in 1963, Hamburg Germany, for "Mitteleuropaische Pilze" by Claus Caspari.

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

Concerning the age of the paper - cca. 50 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 vintage prints due to their age some imperfections are to be expected.
