Vintage German Octopus Chromolithograph

I had originally found this little work of art on Ebay months ago and forgot to post it here! It's no longer available for purchase, however I thought you might enjoy a little German ceph art. Big shout out to the squid, nautilus, and cuttlefish - cephalophilia in tha house!!!


Item Description:
Artist Etzold.
An original old German colour chromolithograph print/book plate(not a modern reproduction)comes from a German "Brockhaus".
The chromolithograph has been printed by Bibliographisches Institut Leipzig. Litho by Brockhaus, Germany in 1894.
Very decorative. It looks great when framed.
The overall size of this print with margins approx 10" x 7".
Condition can be see from the scan.
The print in the original is brighter and better.
