I am thrilled with this find! I found it at a local thrift store sandwiched between cheaply framed posters. I knew it was a treasure and couldn't believe the cashier only wanted $1 for it. That's right, ONE DOLLAR!

This is a Carl Zimmermann hand-colored copperplate photogravure on hand torn rag paper and worth substantially more than what I paid. I have Etsy shops and also sell on ebay but this one stays here and I'm getting it framed.

Zwanzigender translated from German is twenty pointer.

Thanks for looking.
