Elegant English Peerage engraving of aristocratic lady in fine, antique beaded gilt wood frame. Inscription on the page reads as follows:

Anne Frances, Countess of Falmouth

Born Anne Frances Bankes (1789-1864) after her marriage to Edward Boscawen, 1st Earl of Falmouth, she became Countess of Falmouth. She was a great beauty and a curious portrait of her by Sir Thomas Lawrence dressed in a crimson robe, with a short sleeve on one side and a long sleeve on the other, is part of The National Trust collection.

This engraving was done by William Henry Egleton (1833 - 1862), an English line, stipple and mezzotint engraver who worked in London, after a work of Alfred Edward Chalon (1780-1860). Chalon was a Swiss watercolor painter fashionable in London's Victorian society. He came to England when his father became a professor at the Royal Military College in Sandhurst. He was named Portrait Painter in Water Colour to Her Majesty and is known for a portrait of a young Queen Victoria featured on many British colonial postage stamps. He was a bachelor and lived with his brother, also a painter, John James Chalon (1778–1854). In good used condition with toning, foxing and small imperfections to frame as shown. Shipped fully insured with tracking number.

Measurements: Frame: 15" by 17 1/2"; Visible Image: 9" by 11 1/2" approximately.
