$ 9,500
  • Description
    Outstanding complete set of 12 'Le Oceanidi' (Oceanids) lithographically printed plates from the mid-1950s, Italy. Each plate tells a story depicting distant and fantastic worlds which feature visionary creatures that are half human, half seashell.

    Since these plates were made only in the mid-1950s, they are rare and even more exceptionally rare as a complete set and very collectible.
