Early Pyrotechnic Firework Art Engraving , Artificer Fambrini Technical Pics:
Fambrini , Ferdinando
Engraved plates on the assembly and detailed construction of rockets , mortars & girandolas ( spinners/Pinwheels)
These engravings are by the classic gravure (engraver) Ferdinand Fambrini,
during the mid 1700’sThey are in excellent condition
I just had these examined by an expert who said "Good Find" The paper is period. It's leaded paper and the striations can be clearly seen. On quick look it appears that no watermark is evident, however not everybody used watermarks, and we may have missed it..
We removed them from the matting and the margins are excellent. These engravings are nearly 300 years old
Perfect collectible for pyrotechnic hobbyists
