Frederiksborg Denmark royal palace 1683 old Mallet city view print hand colorBrian DiMambro- Antiquarian
(Denmark - Europe)
Issued Paris, France, 1683 for A.M. Mallet.
Miniature panoramic view of this royal castle. Horse-drawn carriages in the foreground.
Charming late 17th century copper engraved city view, with very pleasing full hand color. Scarce, thus.
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.8 1/4"H x 5 3/8"W.
Printed area measures c. 5 5/8"H x 4"W.
