This detailed picture is an original steel engraving. It was published in 1854 in "The Illustrated London News". It shows a fac-simile of a Chinese Military Despatch sent by the Imperial officers to Bejing. According to the Illustrated London News the event portrayed is sheer invention, but the dress and general appearance of the Chinese Soldiers is very accurate. The reverse side of the engraving is a page of the "The Illustrated London News" of January 7th 1854 and has a description of the despatch. It would look even more beautiful when framed in a simple frame.

Published : London, England 1854

Size : circa 10 1/2 x 16 inches

Condition: Very good condition with nice color and light tanning giving it a vintage look. Please see pictures
