Baxter Print in Oils, Zenobia, 1837.
Baxter Print, with a title box “Zenobia”, and a lower box reading in script “Printed in Oil Colours by G. Baxter (Patentee) from a Painting by W. Pickersgill, R.A.” ( R.A. means Royal Academy, London).
Very attractive subject, lovely original wood outer and gilt inner frame with hanging loop at top. Rear has an old auction label stating “BAXTER all prior to 1840” and “Lot 180 Zenobia”. I have an old reference book on Baxter prints (I used to collect them and this is one from my collection) - which states “This excellent print illustrated a poem of the same name (Zenobia). It is No. 9 in the “Cabinet of Paintings” and dates it at 1837.
Item measures 32 cm by 28 cm. Very good condition for the age.
