Each Erstwhile hanging is a beautiful and authentic restoration of a vintage illustration. This piece is from the original zoological illustration from the 5th edition of the ‘’German Meyers Konversations Lexikon 1893 – 1897’’. This series has been perfectly preserved with all it’s wear and tear from over 100 years of use. The artwork has been printed onto Airtex canvas, with its brilliant colours and accurate detail carefully restored. They come hand-mounted with aged timber batons and 100% hemp rope, meaning each piece is supplied ready to hang.
