Palace in the Sun
(18th Century- Historical Religious scene- Palace in the Sun Situated on a Rocky Knoll- Dragons- Eagle- Ornate Design)
Printed 1705, Amsterdam by J. Lindenberg
Charming and beautifully engraved original early-18th century print. A splendid example of a style & type of symbolic image rooted in an era hundreds of years old.
Delightfully detailed, a visual feast. Virtually every cm of the surface area is pictorially engraved.
A very uncommon and interesting old print which could readily be collected on it's own merits, displayed or given as a present.
In Fair to Average or better antiquarian condition, some typical age toning, dustiness or scattered surface browning, small scattered light spotting or light old dampstaining as seen, actually still visually appealing in an antiquarian sort of way. Narrow margins all around as seen, not an issue at this low price level since could still readily be framed if desired.
A fascinating and unique antique print that any collector, dealer, institution or person of taste would be happy to own or display.
