Portugais.

(Portuguese People- Portugal, Europe).

Issued Frankfort, Germany, 1719 for A.M. Mallet.

Charming early 18th century copper engraved ethnic print, with pleasing full hand color.

The image has a near folk-art feel, a style unique to this historical era. Utterly unlike anything produced today and of modern aesthetic appeal for this reason.

Mostly clean and well preserved example, the image displays a fine patina.

Sheet measures c. 7 3/8" x 5 3/4".

Printed area measures c. 5 1/2" x 3 7/8".
