This antique (circa late 1800s) French lithograph with a theme of the vine/wine measures 11 ¾ x 8 ⅛". The gentleman holds a staff with bunches of grapes and leaves adorning it and a squirrel atop. He carries a drageoir on his back to hold dragées/table sweets. A dog is at his feet as he stands atop a carved platform. Flowers are to the right of his sword. There is a handle at the top of the drageoir of a creature holding an instrument.
This is a lithograph of an actual German-made tabletop decoration created at the end of the 16th century. The lithograph has appeared in a heavily illustrated book by historian Paul Lacroix-- Sciences and Letters of the Middle Ages (Sciences et Lettres au Moyen Age)
The entire sheet does have staining and soiling as well as damage at its corners. The lithograph itself does have some light creasing. The colors are vivid and have an almost metallic sheen to the silver and gold elements of the print.
