Two very nice hand coloured and signed prints one dated 1809 and I think the other the same. For being over 200 years old they are in astonishing condition, very little foxing and I think the colours are quite vivid. They have been framed by H. Fisher & Son Christchurch, quite along time ago, there is quite a lot of information on the back of each, which has been handwritten. I assume Fishers have copied the information from the front of the prints, which is either at the bottom just under the matt board or on the back of the prints themselves. You can see part of the description and signature at the bottom right of the dancing print, which has been partially obscured by the matt board, and I would say the matt board on the other one totally obscures the description and signature on the chatting one. I cannot see any reason to reframe them as the matt board and frame are in nice condition also. There is the odd little blemish but overall I cannot see a problem. I have taken pics of the description on the back which should zoom up pretty well. From what I can see they are Italian prints hand coloured and signed in 1809, I have not had them out of the frames to verify what is written on the back but see no reason for it to be wrong. They both measure 40.5 cm X 31.5 cm (frame size) and the size of the prints showing is dancing one 27.5 cm x 19 cm and the other one 27.5 cm x 18.5 cm. Please view pics.
They were very hard to photograph because of the reflecting glass on the front of them.
