Images shown are from our actual cast and not stock images from google!
Brand new to Prehistoric is one of our all time favourites - the 'Berlin Archaeopteryx', restored to its original condition. One of the first iconic fossil discoveries that helped give us our first insight into the link between Dinosaurs and flight in 1861, a lot of the original detailing was removed for display purposes, lost forever.
This is a world first and exclusive to us - we have painstakingly restored this iconic fossil back to how it was originally found. Through painstaking research we have carefully re-created these features resulting in the only version of the original discovery available anywhere in the world.
In life this magnificent creature would have been about the same size as a modern day rook or magpie, this stunning precision cast is now available through us in exquisite detail, and subtly hand painted to match the original Solnhofen limestone formations of Bavaria, Germany dating back to mid Jurassic.
A truly timeless replica suitable for any collection or exhibit.
45 X 37cm. Hand painted at our studios in the UK. Cast in polyester with board backing. Wall mountable via brass loop on rear. There are quite a few reproductions of this fossil available, most come in a hand painted buff finish with obvious brush marks. We have matched the original colour scheme of the original specimen, ensuring that your replica is grey sandstone just like the original in a totally natural finish for maximum authenticity.
Last image: One of the few surviving images of the original Berlin specimen as it was in the late 1800's.
