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.

MasterCraft was definitely a maker of fine mid-century household goods. This once mighty American brand created products to last. This flashlight has, “MasterCraft” and “3″ printed on the bullet end. It’s made of solid copper. The handle and some of the other parts are nickel-plated.
The flashlight certainly has its share of small dents and common wear, expected of a product dating around 60 years old. It measures nearly 10.5 inches long. The reflector housing is approximately 3 inches in diameter. As you can see, it works perfectly and takes three “D” sized batteries. It has a substantial feel in your hand and illuminates very well. Great classic design.
