1853 is the date on the artist's proof of an engraving from the painting of F.C. Turner, English painter. The scene is titled at the top: Moore's Tally Ho! -- To the Sport. The overall size is 30" wide by 23" high. The frame itself is about 1" wide so the remainder is the image size. The paper itself has a light water stain on one side as shown, running vertically and horizontally in the margin next to the frame. The image itself is not affected. There is a bit of fading down the center but this is not objectionable. The script at the bottom reads: The Noble Tips and underneath this is Tipperary "Killing no Murder" - The Marquis at Home. Under this Dedicated by Permission to the Most Noble The Marquis of Waterford by his Lordship's most Obedient Servant J.W. Moore. The engraving is by G. Hunt and J.R. Mackrel. The image shows a pack of hounds in the foreground, and a group of men and women on horseback and standing. The central figure wears a red coat and waves his hat to those assembled.
Moore is the publisher of this engraving which was done in London. The back is comprised of two wooden boards that hold the engraving in place. This should be removed and the piece should be archivally mounted as soon as possible.
