Beautiful pair of early water-colored engravings of military uniforms, the first a charming 1798 Royal Horse Guards equestrian portrait and the second an 1822 Roman Carabinieri (policeman) signed on the plate F. Ferrari, Rome. We have seen another example of the last engraving described as a Carabinieri Pontificio, meaning Pontifical Police. Inscriptions on the pages read as follow:
To Field Marshal His Grace THE DUKE OF RICHMOND, Colonel of THE ROYAL HORSE GUARDS, and to the OTHER OFFICERS of that Regiment, this representation of their present uniform is most humbly and respectfully dedicated.
By their obedient Servants, The EDITORS and PROPRIETORS.
London, Novem. 1798.
They come beautifully matted and framed, ready to display. Perfect to decorate a foyer, hallway, entrance living room, office or similar. In good used condition with toning, tears, smudges and imperfections consistent with age as shown. Shipped fully insured with tracking number.
Measurements: Frames: 16" by 13" approximately.
