ANTIQUE ONE-OF-A-KIND HAND MADE PRINT
These 165 year old prints are from the book "THE BOOK OF CRESTS" by Bertie Gray. They were published in c1850, I believe in England, although I purchased the book from Australia..
These "one of a kind" prints have an engraved background image with miniature cut-out heraldic crests glued in place. The appliques have raised printing and have been cut out with great precision. In addition, there is hand coloring on many of the prints and some have gold lettering. It appears that these hand made pages are one-of -a-kind.
