Wonderful large scale original antique engraved portrait print. Fine old portrait print with a visual quality utterly unique to the 18th century.

Printed in the 18th century, the hand made paper is gently age toned as always, but remains sound, mostly clean & very well preserved. Chain lines clearly visible when the sheet is held to light.

A lovely artistic image which is not often seen, and is perfect for display.

A picture is worth a thousand words. The zoomable image is a major part of the item description. Please examine closely, as what you see is what we will send you. [note: we grade very conservatively and always seek to disclose any noteworthy flaws ].

In Good+ to near Very Good or better condition; normal uniform minor age toning to sheet as typical, light waviness and small staining or spotting. Overall the printed image is clean, well preserved and very attractive.

A wonderful antique printed image which any collector, dealer, institution or person of artistic taste would be happy to own and display.
