Original John Hall Thorpe woodcut, printed in colours.

The Chinese Vase is one of John Hall Thorpe’s largest colour woodcuts. It can be found in a variety of different colour schemes, varying from schemes which include vivid reds and deep blues to impressions which are printed in almost monochromatic tones.

On firm cream wove paper with margins, as issued. Faint time-tone in margin towards top and left of sheet, otherwise very good original condition.
