RARE ANTIQUE 1863 STEEL ENGRAVING-PRINT GEORGE WASHINGTON-JOHNSON FRY & CO. N.Y.
Up for sale is a rare antique 1863 steel engraving of George Washington. This engraving was made from the painting by Alonzo Chappel and published by Johnson, Fry & Co. New York. It was removed from a book in which it was originally published in the 1860s. I believe the book was "History of the United States" by Jesse Ames Spencer. The entire print measures approximately 8" by 11". There are some marks on the back from where the individual that removed them from the book wrote the name of the person in the print on the back in pencil. It also has an irregular edge where it was removed from the book as well as a good deal of age related discoloration and foxing and a couple of stains on the bottom. You can also still see the gilded edges on the other three edges of the print. It also may have some small tears to the edges. This has been photographed for you to view. Please review the photos for additional information and please ask any specific questions that you may have prior to offerding.
