This adorable purple hummingbird was originally engraved by W.H. Lizars and published in “Sir William Jardine’s Naturalist’s Library” in 1852. This bird, also known as the Trochilus Coeligena, exhibits an array of purple hues within its feathers that stand out beautifully against the aged white background. To serve as a reminder of the piece’s antique origins, the name and plate number of this print have been kept and stand out boldly on the white background. All of these qualities make this bird the perfect addition to any space, especially a hallway gallery or a living room.
