A wonderful and attractive original old vintage antique engraved print.
Printed in the 18th century on handmade paper which has gently age toned as always, but which remains sound, mostly clean & well preserved.
In Good+ to near VG or better condition; normal uniform minor age toning to sheet as typical, some small dampstaining, and light small spotting. Overall the printed image is clean, well preserved and very attractive.
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 ].
A little-known and fascinating vintage print which any collector, dealer, institution or person of artistic taste would be happy to own and display.
