T.Allom 19th C. Tinted Steel Engraving from China Illustrated
Drawn by English architect, Thomas Allom and appearing as one of the 100's of engravings in the 4 volume edition from the 1840's, "China Illustrated", this tinted engraving is spectacular. Spectacular because of its expert rendering and that it captures a moment in history so well. This one is called "Ancient Bridge, Chapoo".
This scene shows people in an outdoor scene appearing to go about their ordinary daily endeavors. It features a stone bridge and a waterway with boats and foot traffic. Lovely houses with trees in the background. Hand tinted. Excellent condition. Framed under glass.
The frame is a vintage, shadow-box style and the interior is gilded while the exterior is painted in a "Chinese Red". When hung - all you see is the gilded interior framing. This is one of 7 recently acquired and listed that are all framed the same way. The matte is a double matte. The matte closest to the image is a gold color while the off-white matte has yellowed with age.
The frame size is 15 1/2" x 12 1/5" and the image size is 7 3/4" x 5". Some pictures taken outside the frame or in the frame without the glass. It will be your option to have us ship it with or without frame or without the glass in the frame.
Please note that the least expensive site selling, untinted and unframed copies, is asking $225.00 each for these!
