Original Signed Archibald Thorburn Print, Oystercatcher, Terns and Ringed Plover

Very beautiful and very very rare signed Archbald Thorburn (1860-1935) print from 1920, published by Embleton. This is known as Oystercatcher, Terns and Ringed Plover. Signed in pencil by the great man to the bottom left margin, with Embleton printing info as per photo 3. Possibly a signed artists proof. Arguably Britain's greatest ever painter of birds and nature, this print is one of Thorburn's most stunning images. It is in excellent overall condition, as the pics show. There is some very minor wear and tape residue to the top edge, common to any previously mounted print, but as the second photograph shows, this is obviously not visible when the print is in a mount. There are a few very light brown specks/marks to the reverse of the print ( very minimal and not visible on front), and some very light rippling which again is very common and would easily be flatten out on re-mounting. This is, as I hope the pics show, an absolutely stunning piece. Actual image measures 18.4 cm by 25.2 cm. Comparable signed prints (they don't have this one, only an unsigned print for £225) on / are priced between £495 and £595 unframed. But this is E-Bay and I want to sell this one quickly as realistically as possible, allowing a gallery to make a fantastic profit or a private buyer to get a great deal, hence the amazingly auction start /Buy It Now ... read more
