Colored Engraving of Dapper Gentleman, “Bachelor of Arts”, Ackermann, 1813Colored Engraving of Dapper Gentleman, “Bachelor of Arts”, Ackermann, 1813Colored Engraving of Dapper Gentleman, “Bachelor of Arts”, Ackermann, 1813

This colored engraving titled “Bachelor of Arts” from the famous Ackermann publication shows an elegant Regency scholar in full dress with gown. He is wearing the typical waistcoat and trousers typical of the era. He would have had a watch in a watch pocket at the waist and the image shows the shorter chain with breloques hanging below the lower edge of the waistcoat. The condition is very good for age with only minimal foxing. Published in Ackermann’s Repository, 1813. This image is currently in a mat which has some creasing at the top left corner. It can be sent within the mat or removed and rolled in a cylinder for postage. Cost of postage will depend on choice and destination. This is a lovely depiction of a gentleman’s elegant fashion of the Regency era. Engraving size in 10 ins (25.5cm) x 11.8 ins (30.2cm). Mat size is 15 ins (38cm) x 17.5 ins (44cm).
This item appears in my books, "Chatelaines, Utility to Glorious Extravagance" on page 61 and “How the Watch was Worn, A Fashion for 500 Years” on page 42.
