Charming original antique engraved ethnic print.
A fascinating manner of pictorially representing this subject of global ethnicity, unique to this era. Each individual is a stereotype representing the most general and level of identification by race.
In Good+ to near VG [or better] condition: sheet lightly age toned, touches of age spotting visible in scan, overall the image remains clean and very attractive. Any minor age flaws or defects may hopefully be clearly seen in the scan- please zoom in to study.
Please examine the scan closely as it forms the central part of the description. There is a zoom feature so you can see close up. [note: we grade very conservatively and always seek to disclose any noteworthy flaws ].
The printed area remains visually pleasing, a nice impression of an interesting and uncommon image.
A fine mid-19th century print any collector, dealer, or institution would be happy to possess. Perfect for display purposes.
