Item specifics

Seller notes: See main description
Original/ Repro: Original Etching/ Engraving Type: Mezzotint
Signed?: Unsigned Subject: Portrait
Type: Antique Style: Vintage
Medium: Etching/ Engraving
This auction is for what I believe to be an original hand coloured antique British mezzotint mounted on board, entitled ‘Mrs Mills’ (Isabella Mills), Painted by G. Engleheart and Engraved by J.R. Smith (Engraver to his Royal Highness the Prince of Wales) in rather good condition for it’s age.

As featured in the British Museum’s collection only, the hand painted colouring differs from the original and this also appears to have been cropped at the base, where the following skeleton copy would be positioned.. “London Published Dec 18th 1786 by J.R.Smith No.83 Oxford Street”

Interesting point of reference:

Measures: 33.5cm Wide X 38cm High (mounted). Printed area measures 22.5cm Wide X 26.5cm High

As with a majority of my 'USED' item listings - this is a pre-owned vintage item so, there will be some signs of age which I've done my best to highlight in the photos/description.

Finally, I’m open for questions. I've got lots more vintage items up now.. And a lot more coming soon too!
