A very appealing mid-19th century engraved print.
This particular type of 19th century printing process was laborious, involving long-apprenticed, highly trained hand artisans. It also involved challenging hand-operated machinery, skill acquired over many years, patience, and other endless tasks and manual labor. Because of these and various other factors, this printed leaf is an interesting original artifact from long past moment in printing.
