17th Century Engraving Titled Avoltoio barbuto d'Africa
Here we have a 17th C. Italian hand colored engraving on laid paper, titled Avoltoio barbuto d'Africa. A handsome bearded vulture standing, no doubt overlooking the scenery for a quick meal. The words on the bottom read "All' Ill: Sig: Conte, e Barone Pietro Pierucci attualm Segret dell Imperial Societa Fisico-Bottanica Fiorent. The piece measures 14 1/2"x 11 1/2" and with the handsome maple frame it measures 21 1/2"x 18". Good condition, a little uplifting from the matte. The frame not original.
