This is a phenomenal antique print is from a portfolio of quality collotype prints published around 1912. It depicts nine African-American black men and boys cutting sugar cane in the field, as the Caucasian white foreman watches from horseback. Very rare!

The collotype is an antique printing method that produced incredible detail and beautiful tones. It was once mounted by the corners to paper in the portfolio. However, at some point it was removed. PLEASE NOTE: You will find some damage to these corners, as seen in the scan. The print could be trimmed to eliminate this damage.

The print is single-sided (blank back) with wonderful tones and hues. The page is approx. 8 x 6 inches, with just a thin white margin.

This is NOT a recent copy or modern reproduction, but a GENUINE antique print. It would look wonderful framed.

All prints are delivered in an archival sleeve and packed flat with heavy cardboard or rolled in a sturdy tube. I stand behind my products and offer a FULL REFUND if you think the product does not match the description in any way.
