Vintage Picks of the Week Antique Wildlife Lithographs

Vintage Picks Of The Week

It’s time for our series, Vintage Picks of the Week! We scour the internet looking for just the right piece of vintage to add to our decor, and include ideas on how we think these pieces could be used.

The Picks this week are brought to you by Dot at Attic and Barn Treasures.

What is a lithograph? Simply put it is a particular type of print process used to make reproductions of original works of art. They are authorized by the original artist and often created by the artist’s own hand. Now, on to our picks! 

Downy Squirrel Lithograph c.1844

Downy squirrel lithograph available from


What I Like About It: I have a fondness for squirrels and these two look like they are cousins of the ones at home. The detailing is superb and their inquisitiveness was captured perfectly! 

How I Would Use It: This would make a wonderful addition to a library or den. I would place this in a quiet place to enjoy as I listen to the sounds of nature.

Eagle Owl Lithograph c.1838

Eagle Owl print available from

What I Like About It: I love the color detailing in the owl’s feathers. The print is a small size that it would work well framed as a group or framed individually and hung within a grouping.

How I Would Use It: I think I would mat this as a center focus surrounded by black and white prints of like birds. It would make a wonderful conversation piece for my office!

European Butterflies Lithograph c.1900

Matted butterflies print available from AntiquePrintBoutique on Etsy

What I Like About It: Love the colors and movement in this print! Framed, this work has the potential to enhance any setting or decor. 

How I Would Use It: I believe this print would be lovely hung beside a window so the light (while not direct enough to harm the print) would add to the movement captured in the lithograph.
