This is a nicely colored antique engraving with watercolor of fruit on a stem, "Damas d'Italie". The engraving by Claude Aubriet (French, circa 1665-1742). This is a nice copper engraving on chain lined laid paper, circa 1730. It is from Duhamel Du Monceau, Traite des Arbres Fruitier, the most influential 18th century study on fruit trees. Very nice condition for the age, slight discoloration on lower left corner but not unsightly, minor smudges! The paper size measures 12 1/2" x 9 1/2", unframed.
