Here is a Beautiful Full Color Vintage 1935 Pre-Apartheid Era Chromolithograph with its original title, which in modern usage is now politically incorrect with its derogatory slang term titled “Kaffirs” (or “non-believer”), which features an indigenous Southern African tribe and their traditional daily life in their village, by the well known listed artist & illustrator ‘Jean Jacques Midderigh’ (Dutch, 1877-1970), whose printed signature appears lower right in image area and whose name along with the title is written in pencil lower left in the outer margin area. The word kaffir, sometimes spelled kaffer or kafir, is an offensive term for a black person, most common in South Africa and other African countries. Generally considered a racial or ethnic slur in modern usage, it was previously a neutral term for black southern African people and the word was used officially in this way, without derogatory connotations, during the Dutch and British colonial periods until the early twentieth century (from Wikipedia). Midderigh’s wife ‘Johanna Bernhardina Midderigh-Bokhorst’ (Dutch, 1880-1972), and he were both famous illustrators of children’s books in the Netherlands. ‘Copyright 1935 in the Hague & Washington by Smith’s Fine Arts Publishing N.V.-The Hague.’, as appears printed in the lower left margin area under image. This piece was purchased directly from the well known publisher Rudolph Lesch Fine Arts Inc., N.Y. and his printed/stamped initials logo ‘L. NY’, appears lower right in the image area. ‘Printed in Holland’, as appears lightly stamped on the back upper left. The Print itself is in Excellent Rare+ condition for its age with No Color Fade-Gorgeous Vibrant Color! This Print has been tucked away in our archive amongst other prints & lithos since it was purchased by the Meibohm family and hasn’t seen the light of day in all this time—it’s as beautiful as the day it was printed. The size with wide margins is 16.75” x 47.5”, Image size is 12-5/8” x 39-7/16”. No Tears and No Foxing! There is some minimal light small creasing here & there in the image area, but aren’t really noticeable at all and not worth mentioning, and some light creasing in the outer margin areas, margin edges & margin corners which are negligible since they can easily be trimmed off or matted & framed out. There is some outer margin edge wear with a few dents, dings and some creasing here & there which are also negligible. This beautiful vintage chromolitho has never been framed which is always more desirable to collectors since it has never been exposed to older non-archival materials, matburn or lightfade.

IMPORTANT NOTES: We ship all of our Antique & Vintage Items Safely & Securley Hardpacked & Secured in between Oversized Cardboard, AND/OR shipped in Heavy-Duty Tubes with Archival Paper or Glassine with Bubble-Wrap added for Protection. Our customers have greatly appreciated their well-packed & well-protected artwork as our feedback clearly shows. -We have unfortunately been on the receiving end of poorly-packed artwork and we wouldn't wish that on our worst enemies.

***To save our customers MORE $$$, ALL Shipping Rates (Domestic & Overseas) 'DO NOT' include Handling/Packing Fees and are extremely close to the 'Actual Shipping Costs' based on eBay's (estimated) Shipping Calculator that we use exclusivley on all of our auction listings.

"eBay's SHIPPING CALCULATOR": We exclusively use eBay's "SHIPPING CALCULATOR", which is built right into the auction page itself and is accessible at the top of the page via the 'See all details' link or via the 'Shipping and payments' tab next to the 'Description' tab at the top of the page. You simply type in your Zip Code or choose your Country from the Drop-Down list provided & it displays the shipping amount for you. HAWAII & ALASKA, would be shipped by either USPS Priority Mail or UPS 2nd-Day Air.

-For U.S. (lower 48 States): We normally ship via UPS-‘GROUND’ since we have daily pickup here at the Art Shop, but we do also offer USPS (United States Postal Service) Shipping Service as an alternate choice. We recommend UPS since they cover up to the 1st $100.00. We will provide a tracking number and will email it to you when the item(s) have shipped.

SHIPPING RATES: In the continental United States are based on the estimated size of the item (with extra spacing for Hardpack and/or Heavy-Duty Tube & Bubble-Wrap for protection) & estimated final weight.

HAWAII & ALASKA: Would be shipped via USPS Priority Mail or UPS 2-Day Air based on estimated size with extra spacing for hardpack and/or shipped in a heavy-duty tube, bubble wrap and estimated final weight.

-For CANADA & WORLDWIDE: We normally ship via USPS Priority Mail International (United States Postal Service), or by USPS First Class Mail International when applicable (and under the USPS 1st Class Intl. size restrictions for smaller items). Please visit the USPS website http://www.usps.com/international/welcome.htm for further information regarding your country and its respective 'Rate Charts', complete information & 'Conditions for Mailing'. We would fill out the appropriate Customs Forms and provide the 'Winning Bidder' with the 'Customs Number' via email as soon as the item has shipped (Items can be tracked via the USPS website at http://www.usps.com/shipping/trackandconfirm.htm, simply type in the 'Customs Number' we provided you and it will display the most recent location of your package).

We normally ship within one business day of cleared payment, but NOTE: Please allow extra delivery time for your item(s) to clear all Customs Houses (U.S. and Abroad-typical delivery time about 14 business days +/-). We also would need a VALID INTERNATIONAL ADDRESS to 'Ship To'.

***IMPORTANT NOTE*** Customs charges/fees & duty taxes are based on the final value amount of the item(s) that we are required by U.S. law to declare on Customs Forms before shipping the item. Under U.S. law we are unable to mark a smaller amount or to declare the item a gift, sample, or anything other than merchandise prints/paintings etc, so PLEASE DO NOT ASK. We are a respectable business & must transact our auctions honestly & by the law. We would be liable and would get in trouble if there were any complications. The value marked on the Customs form will be the final auction price for any or all prints/paintings & will not include shipping. Most items will be shipped rolled in a Heavy-Duty Tube to save on shipping costs. Some may be shipped flat/hardpacked at our discretion.


COMBINED SHIPPING: We offer Combined Shipping, for multiple winning auctions if the items can be put into the same package. Note: Some Combined Rates may be higher due to Combined Weight changes or Oversized (OS1) dimensions, for items such as: Framed items, multiple paintings on canvas, oversized items etc. Please wait until we email you an appropriate invoice reflecting the discount for any multiple item auction wins before you pay via PayPal, or you can email us for an invoice after auction end.

We will usually ship within 1 business day of receiving cleared payment for any winning auction(s). Note: We are closed Sundays & Mondays, so next business day would be Tuesday.. We make every effort to pack artwork securely and carefully as per the items’ specifications.

Due to the Antique/Vintage nature of MOST of our items, at our discretion we ship items flat or in heavy-duty tubes and they are securely & safely packed with each item wrapped in packing paper or archival glassine, then secured in between oversized cardboard or rolled in a heavy duty tube, then bubble-wrap is added, as per the item's specifications. Smaller items (like postcards & small prints) will also be securely & safely packed with each item wrapped in packing paper or archival glassine, then secured in between oversized cardboard, then shipped in a bubble-lined envelope.

EMAILING US: eBayers, at all costs, please use eBay's email system only (no outside email addresses) to contact us with any questions you may have. eBay's email system GUARANTEES we get your email and more importantly, that you get ours. A lot of servers in the last few years have started using newer SPAM filters, and there have been a lot of problems with GOOD emails not getting through correctly, and being returned as undeliverable. We have had numerous problems in the past communicating with our eBayers outside of eBay because of it.

COLLECTORS & DEALERS: Please DO NOT email us (inside or outside of eBay's email system) with any offers to stop an auction early. It would not be fair to the rest of the eBay Worldwide community if we did that. THE HIGHEST BIDDER -OR- HIGHEST OFFER WINS IT!!!!!

Thank you from the Staff at Meibohm Fine Arts, GOOD LUCK & HAPPY BIDDING!!!
