"Croquet Under Difficulties", Illustrated London New, 1871. Original Illustration.
A Beautifully Detailed, Original Illustration of "Croquet Under Difficulties". HAND-COLORED. Unknown Artist. From The Illustrated London News, August 5, 1871.
This picture is extremely hard to find, as the American Architect and Building News not only had a very small circulation during that time, but very few were actually preserved or colored as this has been. It measures 9.5 by 14.5 inches. LARGE PICTURE. Has a mat border and foam core backing (not attached to the picture). The whole plan measures 13.5 x 18.5 inches (with mat border). Finely detailed and beautifully hand-colored. Shrink wrapped.
Plan is in VG+ condition.
This is a highly unusual, scarce item. See our other auctions for more hand-colored original plans.
