THE YOUTHFUL QUEEN OF THE HOP GARDEN
No place or date but London c.1850 - Large (22 x 18 inches), stipple engraving magnificently PRINTED IN COLOURS. This is probably a proof as the artist's and engraver's names have not been added to the plate as yet and the quality is exceptional. One small marginal tear repaired, not affecting the image and the margins are a little browned but quite acceptable. Not framed or mounted at present as I hope to find an antique 'birds eye' maple to complete the authentic period piece. This is the rare large size version of this well known image in the ultimate de luxe version, printed in colours (not a later uncoloured version) which is very scarce. Such was the difficulty of this method of colour printing only small numbers were issued. PRINTS/MAPS HOPS PRINTS/MAPS
