The Story:

This chromolithograph employs a complex multi-stone process and was prepared for the famed ten volume set Oriental Ceramic Art. This impression is an office copy retained in the Louis Prang & Co. archive. When the archive was dispersed in the 1920s, Charles Henry Taylor acquired a portion and donated it to AAS.  The gift included loose prints and sixty bound volumes of Prang salesmen’s sample and proof books.
