This particular type of mid-19th century lithographic printing process is very time intensive and highly skilled, involving trained artisans and challenging hand operated machinery, both of which are now quite rare. Because of these and various other factors, it is now essentially extinct as a method of reproducing images such as this one.
An interesting and well printed paper artifact from a long past era.
Printed on quality period paper which is lightly uniformly toned, may show typical gentle signs of age, perhaps some minor light spotting or foxing, but retains its inherent structural flexibility and soundness.
An appealing, uncommon and interesting lithographic image relating to the eye.
