Wrought Iron Entrance Gates, Old Silk Mill, Derby, England, 1883, Original Plan. A. Macpherson
A Beautifully Detailed, Original Plan of the Wrought Iron Entrance Gates to the Old Silk Mill in Derby, England. HAND-COLORED. A, Macpherson, Architect. From the American Architect and Building News, February 9, 1883.
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 12.25 by 8.25 inches. Has a mat border and foam core backing (not attached to the picture). The whole plan measures 16 by 12 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.
