Extraordinary pair of antique, hand colored, steel engravings of Middle Eastern genre scenes portraying women in everyday situations. They are entitled Ceylon and Persia and were published in Finden's Tableaux, an annual publication that ran from 1837 to 1844 and meant "to illustrate pictorially the character of many nations." They come beautifully matted and framed in a shadow box frame with double, serpentine mats, and are ready to display. Inscriptions below the images are concealed by mats but, based on other references, we know that they are entitled and authored as follows:

"Ceylon" engraved by J.Posselwhite after a painting by W. Perring.

"Persia" engraved by H. Egleton after a painting by J. Browne.

Photos taken through glass which explain reflections. In very good used condition with toning, mat spots and minor imperfections to frames as shown.

Measurements: Frames: 15 1/4" by 12 1/4"; Visible Image: 10 1/4" by 7 1/2" approximately.

Item ID: 2883
