Issued c.1888, Paris for Racinet
Printed by Firmin Didot
Beautiful original antique chromolithograph print. Depicts the beautiful historical clothing of this nation.
A wonderful type of "high key" color printing which is essentially extinct as a method of producing images for distribution.
In VG [or better] condition: displays normal minor light age toning as typical, small tear in the blank margin, and light trivial soiling.
Overall the image remains clean and very attractive.
Please inspect visual scan closely and note the zoom feature which allows for close inspection [note: we grade very conservatively and always seek to disclose any noteworthy flaws].
Great image entirely worthy of hanging for display. A depiction captured in a manner entirely unique to this era.
The printed area remains visually pleasing, a nice impression of an interesting historic cultural image.
