Pair of 19th Century Pet Engravings 'The Pets' and 'Eyes Front'
**The Illman Brothers, Edward and George, were prominent engravers in Philadelphia during the 1800s. Steel engraving was introduced around 1823, replacing the soft copper engravers that could not withstand numerous printings, hence losing detail to the print. During the latter part of the 19th century, colored engravings were introduced.
Measurements: 9 inches tall x 5 1/2 inches wide outside.
