Stockholm Sweden Royal palace view 1719 Mallet early hand color printBrian DiMambro- Antiquarian
Palais du R. de Svede.
(Europe / Sweden/Stockholm- Royal palace).
Issued Frankfort, Germany, 1719 for A.M. Mallet.
Charming early 18th century copper engraved celestial urban view print, with pleasing full hand color. Tall mast sailing ships seen in waters.
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 7/8" x 5 1/4".
Printed area measures c. 5 7/8" x 4".
