A framed glazed Signed Artists Proof print of an 1861 Meissonier painting of a Musketeer. The frame measures approximately 18.5in by about 14.625in and the visible print measures about 10.75in by about 7.5in.
The print itself bears the artist's signature (not the original) Meissonier and the date 1861. Underneath that, on the mount to the left hand side is an oval impressed mark with the words Signed Artist proof with V&C at the centre. On the opposing side is a signature which sadly we have been unable to decipher (see photographs). The frame is structurally sound although there are a few minor dinks and it would benefit from expert cleaning.
It is presumed that the Artist Proof is of the engraving or print (should imagine there were no Artists Proof as such in the mid eigghteenth century) and therefore we believe that the date of this item is fairly contemporary.
