About:

An antique original 1884 hand finished print from W.T. Greene's "Parrots in Captivity"

These delightful coloured wood-engraved plates were printed by Benjamin Fawcett after drawings by A.F. Lydon. The prints are hand finished, particularly the eyes and the beak, and on some there is a beautiful silvery wash applied to the feathers. 

Benjamin Fawcett was one of the greatest color printers of the 19th century. He pioneered a system of wood block engraving from multiple wood blocks that resulted in vivid finely colored works such as these.

All our antique and vintage prints are framed in house using archival grade methods.

Frame measurements:

  • 35 x 42cm
