Color etching titled "La Mare" ("the pond"), featuring a whitewashed two story country house or inn by a dirt road next to a pond, signed in pencil below the image "de Croisset". There is a printed label on the backing stating that this is a limited edition. A search by this name does not reveal a listed artist; I suggest that this might be a pen name/pseudonym. The date is probably circa 1930's to about 1950 at the latest. This was framed but the frame is falling apart so will be shipped unframed. The reverse of the paper has become darkened by exposure to acidic framing materials; image portion is clean, and there is edge browning from exposure to the mat. Re-frame with new archival acid free materials and this peaceful French country scene will be ready for the wall. Measures 11 1/2" by 8 7/8" inside the mat.
