Sea Stars 18th c. Engraving
Seeing stars. One of my favorite finds, this gorgeous 18th c. copper engraving is the real deal! Originally found in the volumes relating to Crustaceans, Shells, Sea Urchins, and a variety of sea creatures, these volumes were published between 1791-1798. Hand colored in a beautiful, rich autumnal color palette, matted and framed professionally. The frame is an early 19th c. vintage with a gilded face and sunflower gold painted sides. The glass is from my collection of early glass. Stunning.
