Here is a nice pair of 19th century engravings showing English water front scenes for your buying consideration. Would make a great gift or keep it for yourself!
These antique engravings were done by J C Armytage and J H Kernot. The two colored engravings show scenes along the ocean off of England. The first shows folks fishing with a net along the shoreline. The second engraving by Kernot shows people waiting for the fishing boats to return to the shore. The details and the hand coloring in these engravings is very eye catching.
We do no see any foxing or brown spotting going on within the engraving. Might be some slight browning along the edges. No watermarks, tears, or repairs.
Beautiful wood frames here. The wood frame is painted silver, gold and reddish. Some finish loss and chipping to the frames. The glass is intact, no cracking or blistering. There is a white, red, and gold matting around the engraving. The paper backing is intact on the back of the frame and has a red stamp of a GA gallery on them. The hanging wire is on the frames and the piece is sealed up from the back.
The Framed English Waterfront Scene Engravings in frame are 17-5/8" tall, by 21-1/8" across, by 1-3/8" wide. The Engravings showing thru the frames are 7.75" tall by 11-3/8" across.
