Original, beautifully detailed two-sided engraving of pig breeds.

The print shows: 1. Berkshire Pig, 2. White Yorkshire Pig.
The reverse side shows: 1. Meishan Pig, 2. Hampshire Pig.

The size of the print: 9,6" x 6,3" (24,5 x 16 cm) including its border.
Printed in 1897, Bibliographisches Institut Leipzig Germany, as an illustration for the 5th edition of "Meyers' Konversations Lexikon".

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

Concerning the age of the paper - cca. 115 years - some spots can be occured on the margin and the reverse side, but these do not effect the quality of the print 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.

Please feel free to email us with any questions or request additional photos.
