The SPAD S.XIII developed by Société Pour L'Aviation et ses Dérivés was a French biplane fighter aircraft of WWI. It was one of the most capable air fighters of the war, as well as one of the most-produced, with 8,472 built. This framed print of the original artist's drawing of the 1917 S.P.A.D. plane is ready to hang in a soldered framed glass.

The Artist/Designer: Artist Norman Stiff and his wife Pam returned to Canada after working for many years at Bothar Bui Studio, a fine art studio in Dublin, Ireland during the 1990's. Their work represents many of the much-loved Irish landscapes and symbols. Norman creates most of the pieces using the time-honoured technique of copperplate etching. His original print is hand pulled and watercolour is added to bring the piece to life. The final image is then reproduced using archival inks and paper and presented in unique handcrafted leaded glass frames made by Pam.
