Colorful Coral Illustration, Home Decor, Double Sided Art Print, Book Plate, Ready for Framing, 1934 Publication Page, Art by Else Bostelmann

This is NOT a reproduction! This is a RARE ORIGINAL double sided, full page, color Else Bostelmann illustration from a 1934 publication. Bostelmann was a popular artist that worked for various well known science magazines. She gained notoriety for merging science and art within her colorful paintings. The caption for this illustration reads, "New Generations Erect Their Castles Upon The Homes Of The Old"

The opposite side, another Bostelmann picture, features a muted toned illustration of a group of coral. The caption attached reads, "Slowly Mounts The Reef, Perhaps To Wreck A Ship or Form An Island."

The page is over 77 years old and is in MINT condition. No rips, tears, stains, folds, or other flaws. My scanner does not do the beauty of this print justice, and the colors are even more crisp and vibrant in real life. This piece of paper ephemera is absolutely worthy to be considered for the most prestigious of collections! It will look awesome framed! Size: 6.5" X 10"

I do have many other antique / vintage ads and illustrations if interested, CONVO me for details.
