Fine antique lithograph portrait of Daniel Twining, son of Thomas, founder of Twining's Tea. Inscription under the image reads as follows:

Dan'l Twining 1756 Born 1713 - Died 1762 J. B. Black, lith. Day & Son, Lithrs. to the Queen

Thomas Twining opened his first shop in London in 1706. In addition to coffee, he served fine tea which was highly taxed and thus a costly beverage only within reach of the upper classes. His son Daniel, portrayed in this engraving, secured a contract with Boston's Governor and exported tea to America with great success. In fact, it is said that during the Boston Tea Party, Twining's tea was not dumped into the bay, only lesser brands. Thomas died relatively young and his wife Mary Little continued to manage the business for the next 17 years. The firm of William Day & Son operated under this name between 1845 and 1867 which gives us an idea of when this lithograph was made. It comes ready to display in a beautiful bird's eye maple frame with gilt interior trim. A great historic conversation piece in addition to its beauty and decorative value. In very good used condition with minor imperfections to frame as shown. Unexamined outside of frame, photo taken through glass which explains reflections. Shipped fully insured with tracking number.
