This listing is for a circa 1950-1960 illustration of a school badge. These illustrations are undated, but seem to have been printed on paper older than the image would suggest. The grain of the pictures suggest a type of sugar paper, which I have used to help me date these as having come from a schoolboy's or schoolgirl's annual in the 1950's. The photo/scan has a watermark, the originals will not show this watermark It is entitled simply:
ABERSYCHAN GRAMMAR (MONMOUTHSHIRE)It shows the school badge, an owl, and the motto: Vi Et Consilio (Strength through wisdom).
The new motto for the comprehensive it became, was Learning To Live, "Dysgu y Fyw"). Abersychan, Pontypool, Torfaen, Wales, NP4 7DF
The print measures 255 x 180 mm (10 x 7" ) approximately ( they vary slightly in size). It is blank on the reverse, and is suitable for framing. There is a little age yellowing - please check the larger picture for condition. This item will be shipped flat in a board backed envelope, and protected inside that envelope by a plastic sleeve. Our use of the term "an original print" is a pictorial image made in a manner which allows it to be multiplied, and originating from the date stated and not the original artwork . This includes examples of various methods of printmaking including wood and steel engravings, etchings, woodcut etc. Many prints inevitably would have been originally bound in a book at some time, as was this one.
