A stunning print believed to be an engraving of a location on the isle of Arran featuring Birch trees and grazing sheep near a stream.
A plate mark can be seen and felt denoting a genuine engraving and not a later reproduction.
Published by S. Hildesheimer & Co of London and manchester, a company known for their publishing of postcards.
The print is large measuring 29" x 19" excluding the frame and the plate mark measures 24 1/2" x 15 3/4".
The engraving isn't dated however we believe it dates from around the late 19th to early 20th century.
The print shows the signature of the artist from the original piece of artwork that the print has been taken from and the original art was done by the well listed artist Ernest Walbourn (1872-1927).
The print is also numbered to the bottom right corner: No.1685.
The print has foxing and other moisture related damage but you may find this can be cleaned up from a good restoration.
The frame the print sits in is damaged with a crack to the top left corner and in the same place the pieces are coming apart. Also there is no glass present and the print could do with being reframed. The print is currently mounted upside down. However with a little work the lovely oak frame could be restored back to its original condition and probably from only a little work.
Please see the pictures for a better understanding of its condition.
