Hartford Connecticut River sailing ships c.1840 old antique print city viewAntiqueMapsPrints.com
Hartford in Connecticut.
Issued Hildb. Germany, c. 1840-50.
Interesting mid-19th century engraved print of this New England city during the age of sail.
The image has a near folk-art feel, a style of image quite unique to this time in history. Utterly unlike anything produced today and of modern aesthetic appeal for this very reason.
Mostly clean & well preserved example, light blank margin toning, staining which just visually testifies to the age and adds to the nice patina.
Sheet measures c. 8 3/4" x 6 1/2"
Printed area measures c. 7" x 4 1/2"
