An actual antique/ vintage printed sheet of paper, not a modern copy or reprint. The sheet could show signs of age difficult to capture digitally, but if we are offering it for sale you can be 100% certain it is entirely worthy of ownership by even the most discerning collector or dealer.
A picture is worth a thousand words. The scan is a major part of the item description. Please examine it closely, as what you see is what we will send you.
[note: we grade conservatively and always seek to disclose any noteworthy flaws.].
Sheet remains well preserved, keeping in mind it is not modern or new, so flaws to paper are to be expected. Some light age wear or surface spotting/ soiling, sheet is a bit age toned, all of which is hopefully entirely visible within the zoomable scan.
Paper and image remains overall clean & sound. Old maps & prints often display small minor repairs on the back, could have uneven blank margins, might have extraneous fold-lines or other small minor age flaws which do not detract from the visual appeal or value. Condition is carefully considered in arriving at our price.
Attractive and appealing old vintage antique print entirely worthy of hanging for display, gift giving, reselling, etc.
A style and manner of depiction entirely unique to this era, an art form little practiced today for imaginative pictorial representation, such as seen here.
Sheet measures c. 10 3/8" H x 7 1/2" W.
Printed area measures c. 7 3/4" H x 5 3/8" W
