 About:

The purple heron is a large wading bird which inhabit wetland areas of Europe, Asia and Africa.

This print references a beautiful hand coloured print from the 1800s. Prints of this style were originally printed in black and white and then hand painted over the top to give them bright vibrant colours.  

We remaster these antique pieces in house to restore damage, and bring back the original colours, printed with archival grade methods to ensure the highest quality and prevent ageing.
