Vintage offset lithograph of mushrooms.

Flammulina velutipes, commonly known as the Golden Needle Mushroom, Wild Enokitake or Lily Mushroom is a species of fungus in the genus Flammulina, widespread in temperate regions. Wild forms differing in color, texture and sliminess are called seafood mushrooms, winter mushrooms or winter fungus, velvet foot, velvet stem or velvet shank, amongst other names. The mushroom naturally grows on the stumps of the Chinese Hackberry tree, but also on other trees, such as mulberry and persimmon trees. There is a significant difference in appearance between the wild and cultivated types of the mushroom.

The size of the print: 10,6" x 7,5" (27 x 19 cm)
Printed in 1961, 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.
