An original antique etching believed to pre-date the 1830’s that shows an early view of Oxford possibly as seen from Ferry Hinksey Hill, across fields that contain two horse riders and a flock of sheep.
This is an interesting view of Oxford that is surprisingly underpopulated compared to the skyline that we know today, though if you were to head up to the Boar’s Hill area of the city views like this can still be seen across fields.
Mounted under an off-white card then framed and glazed pithing a simple thin black wooden frame that succeeds in not competing with the image within.
The frame has some signs of age with a number of scratches but no serious damage and there is slight foxing and paper discolouration due to light exposure over the years as can be seen in the photographs provided and all adding to the character of this piece. There is no visible signature on this piece – which may be hidden below the mount.
The frame measures approx:
- Width: 18″ / 46 cm
- Height: 14″ / 36 cm
The engraving aperture measures approx:
- Width: 13″ / 32 cm
- Height: 9″ / 23 cm
