This decorative hand colored reverse engraving/print on glass scene depicts The Birth Of Christ (after Anthony Van Dyck) and was published by P Stampa of London. Please see the identical Mezzotint engraving (not reverse engraving) by P Stampa in the British Museum, London. P Stampa is listed at the museum as a Print seller and publisher of cheap decorative mezzotints, mostly colored and mostly allegorical. We have sold some of his examples in the past with their wonderfully naive and special charm.
Frame measures 10.25” (26 cm) by 8.25” (21 cm).
Condition:. The picture has the lovely old bubbled and striated glass and has the deep treacle like depth found on reverse prints of this age that we know and love. As you can see from the reverse inscription it was purchased back in 1934 during a trip to Stamford, Rutlandshire. The oak frame is an antique frame but not the original Georgian frame. The publisher’s details are along the bottom, just a little tricky to photograph as it is just under the bottom of the frame. Please excuse any reflections on the glass, all images taken in natural daylight.
We are also retailing its partner 'The Crucifixion' separately.
The price is reduced allowing room for no further reduction.
