To celebrate the 70th birthday in 1898 of Dr. Friedrich Karl Castelhun (son-in-law of Paulus Roetter), a plaque was created which featured one of his most famous poems (a PDF print of the text and its English translation will accompany the purchase).  The original metal plaque went to Milwaukee and has since become lost (I tried to track it down, though let me know if you have any idea of its whereabouts), but the family retained a plaster version and this official print.  The image will be reproduced to matte paper and put in a black frame of approximately 8" by 14".


NOTE:  The prices cover the costs of physically restoring, scanning (or oversized photographing), digitally restoring, reprinting, framing, handling, and shipping (which is included and not tacked on separately). I then round up the totals to help cover the costs of restoring more artwork.


QUALITY: Every physical order will look better than what is on the website. The images here in the shop are greatly reduced in size and quality, and they're cropped to fit the boxes.  I didn't put watermarks on them because I want you to be able to save the images for free for your own personal use.  But the actual framed prints will be done from extremely high-quality files.  From a step or two back, the reproductions are near indistinguishable from the originals.
