ANTIQUE PRINT: SOHO SQUARE : CHAIRS TO MEND.

[CRAIG, William Marshall, 1764?-1829] : SOHO SQUARE : CHAIRS TO MEND.

[London : Richard Phillips, 1804]. An attractive antique print – outside a wine-merchant’s premises in Soho Square a young woman with a baby in a sling holds a bundle of rushes. Her partner would be at work mending the rush-chairs of the local residents. Engraved from an original study by William Marshall Craig, water-colour painter to Queen Charlotte. Originally produced for Phillips’ part-work “Modern London : Being the History and Present State of the British Metropolis” (1804), but here in a slightly later impression with the outer ruled border, imprint and credit burnished out.
Etching and line engraving on paper. Original hand colour. Engraved surface (including double-rule outer border) 119 x 83mm (approx. 4-3/4” x 3-1/4”). A few small marks to outer blank margins, but otherwise in very good and clean state. A guaranteed genuine antique print. Adams 89/031 – not listing this variant.
