Vintage prints from Transylvania

The Transylvanin Trove on Etsy sells some original vintage prints from this special province of Central-Eastern Europe. The more valuable item is a 2014 imprint after an 18th century plate from the collection of the National History Museum of Transylvania, a Baroque depiction of flowers with a tiny view over the city of Targu Mures. Under the central floral composition one can see on the left a small city vedutta (probably a view of Targu Mures, in Transylvania) and the engraver's name and year: Josephus Vasarhellyi (in Latinized Hungarian meaning Joseph from Vasarhely=Targu Mures) 1772. According to the name, the author was a Hungarian master from Transylvania. Etching, numbered in pencil 9/I. Material: sepia typographic ink, printing paper. See the etching on Etsy HERE.
