Aquatint Engraving of Magdalen Tower, From The Bridge, Oxford, Printed in 1802, Very Good Condition, Large Original Engraving

Offered at $450.- SOLD

A lovely original Aquatint Engraving of Oxford, from 1802. It’s a very large engraving with fine details and excellent colouring. There is a very slight bit of foxing at the top of the engraving. The overall condition is good and is clean of any serious damage. It’s an impressive print, in size and overall condition.

The frame is black and likely from the later part of the 19th century. The glass is wavy, which is very desirable, as it shows the print was framed a very longtime ago.

It’s remarkable, how little the architecture has changed in busy Oxford, since the Industrial Revolution! Besides street lights, cars and bicycles, the picture hasn’t changed much.

Published by Wm. De La Motte, Oxford, April 14th 1802.

Empire Work Table Made In New England | Circa 1840s

19TH CENTURY EMPIRE WORK TABLE
MADE IN NEW ENGLAND
Circa 1840s
Lovely turned legs in a spooled style
Excellent Dovetailing!
Exceptional Patina!
 
A fantastic example of country American Empire.  It’s all original, with some of the green paint still visible, especially around the drawer.  The entire piece has received a coat of wax to bring out the depth of the original finish.  The base and legs appear to have once been painted in a period green, which must have been semi-removed long ago.  It was an estate find from a farmhouse, with many items having been untouched for a very longtime.  The wear and patina are so attractive and give testament to the age of this piece.
In very solid condition, with nicely working hinges and smooth gliding runners.  The table is mainly made of mahogany, with drawer bottom, back and sides of pine.  All dovetails are strong, within the drawer.
Local pickup would be desired.  Delivery can be arranged throughout New England, Boston and New York City. 
‘White glove’ shipping available.
