This wonderful, decorative lithograph print of a horse was produced in France during the early 19th century. The horse ‘Shakespeare’ was the son of the famous racehorse Hobgoblin; he was born in 1745 and went on to win a number of prestigious races including a race at Newmarket, England. The text reads ‘Shakespeare. Cheval etalon, appartenant au Marquis L***’ when translated to English it reads ‘Shakespeare. Horse stallion belonging to the Marquis.’ We cannot quite read the engraver, bottom left corner. The print is housed behind old glass in its original, unopened gilt Gesso frame. Last few images are taken in natural English daylight.

Measuring: Frame width 12 inch (30.5 cm) by height 10.5 inch (26.5 cm). Aperture width 9 inch (23 cm) by height 7.5 inch (19 cm).
Condition: Some minor darkening to the edge of the paper, small stain to bottom left edge and a minor pencil mark near the end of the title. Minor surface wear to the frame commensurate with age.

This is a rare and decorative item; we have not been able to find another example. The perfect item for anyone looking for a classically elegant equine art work.

Shipping: FREE DHL courier shipping to mainland USA, and mainland Europe. We do not cover any import duties, fees or taxes should they arise.
