This charming hand colored mezzotint was produced in England during the 18th century, in the year 1793. The engraving was printed and sold by Carington Bowles on the 1st of May 1793. Carington Bowles (b 1724 – d 1793) was the son of the print publisher John Bowles and came from a line of printers and publishers. The print depicts a highly fashionable man and woman holding hands in a tondo. The gent is certainly a handsome Georgian officer with his powdered wig and bright red frock coat. His partner is just as fashionable with her piled high curled hair, blue ribbon silk headband and red paste jewels. We ADORE her 18th century cotton mittens. This original example was historically trimmed to fit the frame and is housed behind old glass in its original frame complete with its gilt slip.

This is a decorative, original 18th century print that will display excellently. Through extensive research, we have been unable to find another example of it. It is perfect for the 18th century historian or historical costume collector.

The text below the scene reads ‘The Harmony of Courtship. Printed for & sold by Carington Bowles, No. 69 St Paul’s Church Yard, London. Published as the Act directs, 1 Ma 1793.’ The print is numbered ‘406’ to the bottom left corner.

Measuring: Frame width 8 inch (20.5 cm) by height 9 5/8 inch (24.5 cm). Aperture width 4.25 inch (11 cm) by height 6 inch (15 cm).

Condition: Good with some minor paper lifting/discoloring from old damp wall transference to the female sitters dress.
