Engraved in 1837, and from the same French publication, here are 2 delightful scenes from ancient Imperial China showing the Emperor in his Palace with his men in the courtyard,
and the Emperor traveling on his caparisoned elephants.

The pieces are small, but even so, every character has been drawn with the most exquisite details.
The magnifying tool will reveal them all:
From the amazing wooden construction on top of the elephants complete with animal heads and hanging Chinese garlands, to the hairdos of the warriors, to the minuteness of Mandarin costumes in the Palace yard.

Exotic and elegant, these rare engravings will bring a touch of fun and sophistication to any decor.

In good condition with some foxing and darker edges due to age, particularly at the bottom.
