Felicia or the Pot of Pinks 1983 Vintage Kay Nielsen Edwardian Fairy Tale Lithographs, Pl 31-32

by PetitPoulailler

Here are two gorgeous Kay Nielsen illustrations featured on one 2-sided paper gleaned from a damaged a 1983 reference book on children's book illustrators.

Both illustrations were originally included in the 1913 volume, 'In Powder and Crinoline' and both were taken from the story, "Felicia, or The Pot of Pinks". Their captions read -

'Felicia thereupon stepped forth, and terrified though she was, saluted the Queen respectfully with so graceful a curtsey'


'List, ah, list to the zephyr in the grove! Where beneath the happy boughs Flora builds her summerhouse; Whist! Ah, whist! While the cushat tells his love.'

Kay Rasmus Nielsen (Danish illustrator, 1886-1957) was popular in the early 20th century during the "Golden Age of Illustration", which lasted from when printing pioneers developed technology to the point that drawings and paintings could be reproduced with reasonable facility.

Nielsen is also known for his collaborations with Disney for whom he contributed many story sketches and illustrations, including his work on "Fantasia" ('Night on Bald Mountain').

The heavy, 2-sided paper measures 8.25" x 11" (21x28 cm), and there are no tears, folds, creases, or marks. Either image will be lovely framed for your home decor - perfect for card and tag creations, scrap-book page making, collage. Perhaps you'll gift this framed for the new baby's room or for your young reader's corner.

You are purchasing an original 1983 paper and it does not have watermarks. I will send this to you flat, protected, and by USPS 1st Class Mail.
