Wonderful stuff. It's remarkable that as a result of the Chinese love affair with Saxophone ,and not just in selling em either ,that we are entering a new period reminiscent of America in the 20,'s and 30's. We 're really in for a bit of a treat very soon. Bring it on.

Lemurs live in Madagascar, which is, as far as I know, not famous for its coffee.
But the animal in the picture looks more like a slow loris to me.

The one I used is from this watercolour (from 1819 anon.) and is entitled Lemur tardigradus but in actual fact you are right that is a type of Loris, and has no tail, but is definitely on a coffee tree (somewhere in Malaya or Indonesia). The picture sold at Sothebys for £3 million

Love the engraving, not sure about the lemur, obviously I'd love a staot ;)
Ah but we now know it's a Loris

And I now prefer the original Loris/lemur picture over the one where he/she has been put in the tree.

So here is a mock-up of how that engraving might look on a dark patina
