This is a steel line engraving by H. Wallis and after T. Creswick dating to 1841 originally. I do not know the age of this piece, but it is on high quality paper which is in very good condition with only the smallest and lightest foxing...three visible spots, all in the clear area near the bottom of the sheet and none visible in the engraved area. There are no stains or other damage and the wood frame is nice and solid, with a couple easily touched up scrapes (I see what appears to be pine under the paint). It has an attached stand but no means of hanging. The frame measures 9 3/4 by 11 3/4 inches on the outside and 7 1/2 by 9 1/2 inches on the inside. It is 7/8 of an inch deep. My photos show the engraving as the eye sees it, black and white. However, with the photos digitally corrected, traces of color can be seen clearly and appear to be correct. It is possible that the print is hand colored as many are but has faded significantly.
Thank you for your time and interest.
