Below: A rare and genuine set of antique Arthur Rackham colour plates in their original antique oak frame and hand written notes describing each picture from the Peter Pan series. The oak frame and backing is contemporary to the prints and the back has never been removed. Prints are dated 1906. There is some damp marks to the underside of the glass which can easily be cleaned with a damp cloth, and both the prints and the backing paper seem to be in excellent undamaged, unrepaired condition. The prints look a lot clearer and higher contrast than they do in this photo.
