Pair of hand-coloured engravings

Beautiful matching pair of rare, early 19th century, hand-coloured engravings of a Weasel, Sable and Marten on one page and a Civet, Egyptian Mongoose and (rare) Genet on another. Most probably part of what may have been a wider collection of natural history engravings from the time, these are annotated in German, are marvellously hand-coloured and would look wonderful properly framed. The coloured detail is superb and these are a good size for any wall. Both pages have some mild water damage and foxing that tends to come with age, but this does not at all detract from their unique character and beauty.

They would look stunning in any stylish home.
