Antique Litho - GREEK STATUES by Millingen 1822 HOMER WITH EAGLE
RARE, ANTIQUE, GREEK ANTIQUITY PRINT
This 188 year old print is from "ANCIENT UNEDITED MONUMENTS - PAINTED GREEK VASES & STATUES, BUSTS & BAS-RELIEFS". This print came from a combined book by James Millingen dated 1822 & 1826.
This DOUBLE lithograph print (the size of the picture) is about 12 1/2" x 8 1/4" on a page that is about 15" x 21" It is in very good condtion but is somewhate brittle due to age. It is suitable for framing and would be an excellant gift.
This is a Rare Print. The total book sold last year for $4,200 in London and there are individual prints from this Milligen publication selling on the Internet for $987 adn on E-Bay recently for $245.
Most of these prints depict parts of Grecian and Etruscan vases and Greek Statues that were obtained through excavation in the late 1700's and early 1800's. Some of the prints include nudes.
In some cases there is a white spot on the print. That shows where there was a portion damaged on the original vase or piece of vase.
Note that you will be sent only the "specific print " as descibed below. A facimile copy of the frontpiece that describes the book will be included gratis. Also, I will include a copy of the description of the vase.
The print that is being auctioned is of "AN AGED HOMER SEATED ON THE EAGLE OF JUPITER".
