This is a series of three etchings, all probably by David Deuchar although not signed, within a single ebonized wooden frame. All three etchings are in excellent condition. Please pardon any glare from the glass seen in the photo. There are no tears, stains, foxing, or other damage. Deuchar was born in Scotland in 1743, and died in 1808. He was best known for engravings and etchings, and his artwork is primarily of peasants. These etchings measure 2 1/2 inches by 3 1/8 inches, 2 7/8 inches by 2 3/4 inches, and 2 5/8 inches by 2 7/8 inches, left to right respectively. These measurements include the narrow margins. All appear to be dry-mounted. The frame is from 1890 to 1910. The overall measurements of the frame are 14 1/2 inches by 6 inches by 3/4 inches. The glass needs slight reinforcement from behind. Interestingly, on the dark paper on back of the etchings, someone long ago penciled "framed at Andersons. A complete (illegible) given to Thomas Temple Hoynes by his mother."
