All prints are guaranteed hand painted with watercolours, hand printed, and Made in Florence (Italy).
By request we can stamp or emboss each print, bearing the wording "Made in Italy" and/or "Made in Florence".
The original series, on ancient made paper, are exclusive article by Florence Prints.
There's no limit to the number of pieces that can be provided for each subject, except for the eventual limited printings proposed on the special offers page.
The different sizes are reported beside each print in two components: the first is the engraving format; the second, between brackets, the paper format.
The paper used is "100% cotton", the best of the market. As you can see by the photo enlargements it is slightly rough. We also guarantee that works, even framed, will not corrugate and will remain unalterable for a very long time.
When specified we use the ancient made paper described above.
While the cotton paper is industrially made, and its production costs are higher, the ancient paper is an handicraft product by Florence Prints at lower costs. Therefore the price variations you will notice on the catalogue, even under the same size, mainly depend on the kind of paper used.
The other kind of paper used, instead of the cotton paper, is the 'ancent made' one. In the catalogue it is cleary reported beside each print when it is used.
It's a sole kind of paper that is not to be found at any other firm.
Realized in artisan way by Florence Prints, this paper is learnedly made older in order to assume the characteristics, of colour and thickness, of the original paper used for the engravings of the XVI, XVII and XVIII century.
Each sheet is smooth to the touch and variously ancient made, so as to become an only copy extant.
The manufacture makes prints so similar to the originals printed at the age, that only a professional man can distinguish between them and the really ancient ones.
In this art prints collection you can find a wide range of original engravings , work by Maestro Virgilio Naldini, and each one is punctually pointed out in the catalogue.
They rove in various subjects: from the "Lady with ermine", pictorial work by Leonardo da Vinci and reproduced by Maestro Virgilio, to english sailing ships or the various subjects representing ancient objects, such as porcelain, cutlery, wine or perfume bottles.
All prints proposed in the catalogue are entirely hand painted with watercolours.
Being handicraft products the combinations of colours are numberless.
An expert person may hence perceive slight variations of tonality from print to print.
Aniway the prints we send will respect the colouring of the samples listed on the catalogue, obviously with little variations due tho the photographic reproduction.
On request it is possible the use of different colours (for example on a dress or on a flower); simply fill the item 'note' on the order form: the required colour variation will be executed on the prints sent.
