(PRINTING). ~ A lithographic stone. ‘KF & Z’ [?Paris, twentieth century].
Limestone (320 × 240 × 70 mm). One edge of the polished surface slightly chipped.
A French lithographic stone for printing fruiterer’s labels, for oranges, reine claudes and mirabelle plums, a strikingly solid example of the physical mass of stones used for printing even such ephemeral items as labels. Even this comparatively small stone weighs 14 kg (over 2 stone).
