Description

Original, Vintage Photochrome – Year 1900
The Photochrome process is distinct from all other color photography. The process used high-quality color inks which were laid down on paper using four to twelve lithographic stones per print, with each stone weighing as much as 65 pounds. A final varnish coat gave each print a lustrous patina and added depth and richness. Thus a beautiful hand-colored quality was achieved. Photochromes were the first commercially available form of color photography and as such have a special historical importance.
