I have this framed Mucha print and it doesn't look like a lithograph and it is very rich color, almost to colorful. It looks like a painting on glass but I am not sure. It measures about 23" tall by 16" wide (approximately). Could anyone please help me out with some more information about this piece; age, period, maker, country of origin, value, name of items, process used to make it, etc?

Thanks a bunch, all input is appreciated.

    This is not by Mucha's hand. The piece is reproducing two well known Mucha posters and looks like it is a student project or something. If you can separate the glass from the frame, you should be able to tell if it is paint on glass. I suspect this was done in the 1970s. There was a surge of interest in the Art Nouveau movement around that period and many of the original posters and design pieces were copied at the time.
