Hand coloured engraving; Le Messager Fidel by E. Lallie, engraved by L.M. Halbou, Paris,
Hand coloured engraving; from the painting Le Messager Fidel, by Jacques Etienne Lallie, engraved by Louis Michel Halbou, Paris.
Jacques Etienne Lallie lived between 1748 and 1810. Halbou lived between 1730 and 1809, and the original engraving was done in 1783, but this engraving has been printed more recently.
A beautifully produced vintage engraving, created in Paris, and framed behind glass. With hanging rings and cord fitted.
The engraving is in fine condition and the modern gilt frame is worn (presumably deliberately to make the frame look older, but it suits the engraving well). A beautifully executed engraving of real quality.

Frame size: 58cm x 46.5cm x 3cm (including hanging rings at rear).
