Rare 1884 Antique Fish Print ~ The Squirrel-fish ~ For Sale
Rare 1884 FishPrints
Beautiful original and scarce black and white plates from a very rare 125+year-old book, The Fisheries and Fisheries Industries of the United States, 1884. These plates are greatly detailed. I will be selling the plates from this collection in the next few weeks/months. I have only seen these plates a few times before, and I was the lucky one to have acquired them. There is a very, very low minimum and so you may have a chance to pick up one or more of these beauties for next to nothing. The plates are very good to excellent condition. These large single-sided plates with no text on the verso, measures approximately 9" wide by 11 1/2". (my scanner did not pick up the entire paper size and focused on the actual image - there is a nice ~ 1" to 2" on sides and 2" to 3" even margin around each fish for framing. In addition, if the listing pictures looks like a funny blue color, rest assured the color in the actual original you will recieve is a nice off white/yellow patina). The plates show some yellow toning that is typical of plates this old which add a nice patina.

I sell only originals, not reproductions. These look great framed and sell for more in antique shops. These prints are highly collectible, prized by fisherman, sportsmen and decorators alike and look wonderful matted and framed, especially in a group. Great gift for a fisherman, hunter, outdoor person, lovers of the ocean, sea, marine life, marine mammals, bird lovers, in a den, cabin, office, or any home decor. These can be a terrific investment; if handled properly, they can be enjoyed for generations to come. Please consider buying a few at these low starting offers as this will save money on shipping and time.
Thank you for your support... I have completed my studies! Now I am helping my kids put themselves through college by selling off our collection and other stuff.
