This is a wonderful Vintage Ostrich Image! This one comes from an Antique German Print that featured different exotic looking Birds on it. The print is huge and can’t be scanned all at one time, but I was able to scan this guy in his entirety and thought he was quite useful on his own! According to the print his is a Struthio Camelus, which sounds quite impressive, but it’s actually a “Common Ostrich”.
This is a wonderful Old Ostrich Image from an Antique Children’s Encyclopedia! Make sure you enlarge this one to see the gorgeous detail on this graphic, it’s pretty amazing! He looks very similar to the one above, but his feathers seem a bit wider. And oh my … those toes!
Vintage Cassowary Bird Image
This is one is actually a Cassowary from an Antique Natural History Print! He is a sort of cousin the Ostrich. He has some very showy features on this neck and head with those red and blue bits in the picture. This one has incredible detail as far as the artwork goes , it’s truly a beautiful engraving with great coloring!
