Chromolithography was invented around 1830 and was the first true multicolor printing technique. A printing stone was used for each color so highly colorful prints such as these required a lot of stones and a great deal of care in aligning them. The Victorians loved this method of printing because of the rich coloring that could be achieved.

Hard to find chromolithograph with gorgeous colors on light cream colored, heavy weighted stock. Reverse side is blank.

Print measures 4.5”x7". Ready for framing!

Actual book print for sale. Not a reproduction.

All plates/prints mailed in an archival cello sleeve with sturdy backing or mailing tube. Please note the watermark on this image is for computer viewing only and not included on the actual print.
