A Rare Baxter Lithograph Print
The name "Baxter" in the world of
lithography was known as the best in quality of prints. As I discussed
this in my De. '2010 newsletter....George Baxter (1804-1867) He produced
prints of high color quality by using twice as many colored blocks than
other engravers. The process to produce them was laborious and not cost
effective, so in 1850 he had to declare bankruptcy.
So it is indeed special to own a Baxter
print. Here in this photo we have a maiden washing clothes in a brook
while being dressed in her native attire. The print is framed in a metal
frame with leaves and strawberries accenting the painting. The print is
covered in glass.
A most unusual and beautiful piece.
Measurements of frame: 3" x 3-1/4"
