Issued c. 1760-80, Europe (likely Probst, Augsburg).
Excellent mid-18th century antique urban view print. With original hand color. View has been mounted long ago to still cardboard paper backing, with early hand-written key identifying 6 of the main features seen within the view.
Image displays typical light signs of handling and time, but displays a fine patina and visual appeal.
Sheet measures c. 11 1/4"H x 15 1/2"W.
Printed area measures c. 9 5/8"H x 14 5/8"W.
Due to backing, print cannot be rolled, so it must be shipped flat with heavy cardboard protection around it, making the parcel expensive to ship- hence slightly elevated shipping cost for this item.
