Mantel, Old Gov. Wentworth House, Portsmouth, NH. 1891. Original Plan.
A Beautifully Detailed, Original Plan of the Mantel in Old Gov. Wentworth House in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. HAND-COLORED. Unknown, Architect. From the American Architect and Building News, April 25, 1891.
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 7.5 x 11.5 inches. Has a mat border and foam core backing (not attached to the picture). The whole plan measures approximately 12 by 16 inches (with mat border). Finely detailed and beautifully hand-colored. Shrink wrapped.
Plan is in VG+ condition with light browning along the edges and some light crinkling.
