Dessalines Framed Print No.21 - The Hippopotamus

19th century antique hippo print | vintage natural history artwork
This stunning 19th century hippopotamus print presents an exquisitely observed natural history study in a handsome black and gold frame.

Meticulously illustrated in photographic detail, the hippo print is taken from Charles Dessalines D'Orbigny's 1849 "Dictionnaire Universel D'histoire Naturelle" and perfectly presents the 19th century fascination for natural history artwork.

Sympathetically presented in a plain black moulded frame with an aged gold inner edging, the notations are scripted in French in the printed style typical of the era.

Ideal for natural history enthusiasts, the antique reproduction animal prints strike a serious note and make a beautifully observed artwork, particularly when presented as part of a set with the matching rhino and elephant prints.
