This vintage lithograph is from Wild Nature, made in the early 1930s in London and Australia. It is what's known as an instructive picture, a genre of antique prints created to educate people about the natural world. As such they usually show animals realistic scenery. They are great art works for children's rooms and for people with a keen interest in wildlife. The image area is in very good condition with attractive coloring. The white margins have some minor indentations.
