Scarce and exquisitely engraved original antique lithographed portrait print.
Uncommon mid 19th century portrait image with a lovely modern visual appeal.
Paper shows typical gentle signs of age, minor normal waviness associated with age, some light spotting or foxing, but is clean overall and retains its soundness. A fine print.
An appealing and not often seen antique view which could readily be collected on it's own merits, displayed or given as a present.
