Collotype Prints . . .  unique, old, limited and collectable

Collotype printing is a 19th century printing process that is considered the finest technique for the reproduction of fine art. Great color saturation is a striking feature of collotypes; however, because of the relatively long time it takes to produce a collotype print and the expense of the process, the craft has slipped into obscurity. 

These fine art collotype prints were produced by either Max Jaffe in Vienna or Arthur Jaffe in New York and are very limited.
