Equestrian Sporting Print- Hand Colored Aquatint. Fox hunt with rider in blue coat. Unmarked and artist unknown to me.
The color image dimensions : 4 3/4" H by 7 3/4" W
Has a nice strong plate mark measuring : 5 3/4"H by 8 5/8"W
Frame dimensions : 10 1/8" H by 13 1/4" W
I removed the print from the frame trying to identify but it was unmarked . There are some measurement marks wrote in pencil on lower bottom. This is hidden when framed. Possibly a page out of a old book due to the rough edge on the lower portion of print. But I'm not certain about that.
The detailing and colors of this are just beautiful.
The back of the print is a darker color and I believe the cardboard backing has caused this. The front is aged somewhat with a some foxing.
Frame is nice wood frame with some slight scuff rubbing marks. The matting is black with a gold gilt stripe painted on interior of glass. The last picture shows the inside of the painted border.
*The darkening to the gold stripe on first picture is a shadow, it is even toned all the way around.
