Antique Engraving Juliet Entreating her Nurse from Romeo & Juliet by Shakespeare
A long time ago I found several books with the plays of William Shakespeare. Each book contained original etchings/engravings and I saved all of them thinking I would one day frome the pieces. Well, I never got around to it so here is one of the many I will be listing on Ruby Lane - all unframed!
Subject Matter: Juliet Entreating her Nurse from Romeo & Juliet, Shakespeare, Act II, Scene 5
Engraver: Engraving by James Parker (1750–1805)
Artist: After the painting by Robert Smirke (1752–1845)
Medium: Etching and engraving appears to be on onion skin laid down on light stock.
Dimensions: The recessed area measures 5-1/2" x 8" approx. the image size is 2-1/2" x 3-3/8".
Condition is very fine though there is some light foxing outside the recessed area (this can be bleached out by a professional). The center can definitely be framed without the foxing shown.
Even if not marked as such, offers are always welcome on any item in my shop. Buy with Confidence, Robins Nest Midwest has the highest rating attainable on Ruby Lane.
