Engraved by C. J. Wagstaff. Beautifully engraved and uncommon 19th century portrait print with old hand color. The precise, detailed & nuanced engraving style epitomizes a particularly fine visual aesthetic quite unique to this moment in engraving. The hand coloring is also unique to this era and done in a very artistic manner. This type of richly contrasting light & dark engraved printing process was very difficult and laborious, involving long-apprenticed, highly trained skillful pictorial artisans. It also involved challenging hand-operated machinery, inking of plates, skill, patience, and other endless tasks. Because of these and various other factors, this printed leaf is an interesting original artifact from long past moment in printing. CONDITION: Please view scan closely as it allows for a close zoom inspection. [note: We grade very conservatively and always seek to disclose any noteworthy flaws. We are doing our best to show & describe this item so you are happy when it arrives]. Sheet is quite clean -- displays very minor age spotting as seen in scan, is perhaps lightly age-toned, but displays no flaws which are visually offensive or worthy of discussion -- overall very clean, well printed and attractive. Could readily be displayed or collected. A very nice antique print any collector, dealer or institution would be pleased to own. Sheet measures c. 5" W x 8 1/8" H. Engraved area measures c. 3 3/8" W x 4 3/8" H.
