Ridinger’s Wildcat Pendants

Johann Elias Ridinger (Ulm 1698 – Augsburg 1767). Wild He-Cat. Hanging at a trunk full of greed and stretching out the paw for a nest with young birds. Printing plate in reverse. (1740.)

The optically excellently preserved original printing plate here seamlessly traced back directly to the master’s estate to sheet 80 (etching with engraving, Thienemann & Schwarz 470) of the instructive set Design of Several Animals, How such are drawn from Life after their Different Kinds, Actions and Passions (“These plates are much wanted and frequently copied”, Th. 1856).

With the number “77” as changed for the new edition by Engelbrecht/Herzberg at Augsburg of c. 1824/25 and as documented by Thienemann per parentheses, too. – Shielded from tarnishing by fine application of varnish, the plate is generally printable in the ordinary course of its use through the times, however, it is offered and sold as a work of art and a collector’s item, thus without prejudice to its eventual printing quality. – With fittings for timeless-elegant frameless hanging.
