New Mission Church, Maidstone, Kent, England, 1884, Original Plan. H. Bensted.
A Beautifully Detailed, Original Plan of the New Mission Church at Maidstone, Kent, England. HAND-COLORED. H. Bensted, Architect. From the American Architect and Building News, December 12, 1884.
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 8 by 6.25 inches. Has a mat border and foam core backing (not attached to the picture). The whole plan measures 11 by 9.5 inches (with mat border). Finely detailed and beautifully hand-colored. Shrink wrapped.
Plan is in VG+ condition with very light browning and some minor crinkling.
This is a highly unusual, scarce item. See our other auctions for more hand-colored original plans.
