Product description

Antique River Thames engravings x 2 - Greenwich, Deptford (18th century), in later frames
 
A lovely pair of genuine original 18th century antique hand-coloured engravings depicting the River Thames, respectively entitled "View of Greenwich, in Kent" and "View of Deptford, in Kent" (although both Greenwich and Deptford are now regarded as districts of south east London), said to date from c.1720 (according to handwritten labels affixed by a previous owner to the reverse of each frame), in comparatively modern black and gilt frames with mounts; both engravings show the Thames with various vessels in the foreground, and buildings in the background (notably Greenwich Hospital).
 
Although the engravings themselves - and to a lesser extent their frames - show assorted signs of age (see condition description below), they remain nicely displayable, and would make an interesting addition to a collection of antique prints, River Thames memorabilia or south London local history.
