Details

A handsome 11 x 17 print that is suitable for framing. Comes with this description: "European artist Franz Xaver Habermann created this engraving sometime in the early 1770s. It shows the early days of Boston Harbor and is designed to emulate the feel of a typical European city and create sympathy for the colonies. Adding to a viewer's feelings of empathy is the appearance of the Beast of Boston Harbor, who regularly ravaged the residents of the town. The Beast was eventually dispatched with the dumping of hundreds of pounds of tea into the harbor by intrepid citizens who correctly surmised that the bitterness of the leaves would drive the creature away. Unfortunately this “Tea Party” was seen as a revolutionary act by the British troops, which led to some degree of unpleasantness."

This print captures a key moment in American history and I'm glad that I can now have it captured on my wall. Beautiful work.

Item shipped quickly and arrived in a couple of days. Was a little disappointed in the size of the print. I ordered an 11x17 print and had ordered the same sized frame concurrently. I didn't realize the print size included a thick white border and will not fit the frame as I had planned. This caused inconvenience and cost extra money in trying to exchange and arrange for a frame that fits. That said the print is really nice and I will still buy from this shop again, because their prints are awesome!

Love this! It's not an anachronism because the cars date it to (near enough) the right time, but it certainly is a reality shift. Very good picture and packaged carefully. It is getting double-takes already.
