Strong plate impressions, beautifully executed printing technique. Nice chiarascuro and sense of atmosphere, nice pair for framing or gift giving.
Two actual antique almost 300 year old printed sheet of papers, not a modern copy or reprint of an old print. The sheets 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.].
Sheets each remain well preserved, keeping in mind it is not modern or new, so minor flaws to paper are sometimes to be expected. Minor old soft fold-lines in the wide side blank margins of no note or concern, just two very nice and well preserved old sheet of engraved imagery relating to gardens and statuary. Some light age wear or surface spotting/ soiling, all of which is hopefully 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 pair of old vintage antique prints entirely worthy of hanging for display.
A style and manner of depiction entirely unique to this era.
