 A pair of 19th Century beautifully illustrated chromolithographs of butterflies, moths and caterpillars. Dipicting life stages of various moths and butterflies, including caterpillars feeding on their native food sources, by W.F Kirby, circa 1885.

These are presented in our handmade copies of an original Regency frame, of rectangular form, with a central oval border and verre eglomise glazing. These frames are made in our workshop, using the traditional methods of wood, plaster, gesso, bole and gilding with 23 carat gold leaf. They are subtly aged and finished with a period or hand cast brass picture ring for hanging. 

The chromolithographs were from ''European Butterflies & Moths'' By W.F Kirby, assistant in the zoological department, British Museum & secretary to the Entomological society of London. Circa 1885.
