"The Invalid" a nineteenth century hand colored steel engraved print.
"Middleton Printer" is in script in the lower right corner.
Family members sitting with an ill, young girl.
Circa 1850s.

This is very Victorian....
Outside in the front door garden the mother is making lace on her lap;
she holds the young girl's hand and looks upon her.
The girl is the invalid. She sits in a carved wooden chair with a mauve lap robe.
She rests her head on her pillow as she sits up in her chair, looking forlorn.
A boy about her age sits on the threshold along side of her with a book on his knees; he holds his chin in his hand.
There is a faithful, small, black and white dog sitting between them.
In the back ground there are flower pots on the shelf filled with green plants.

This print is matted and wrapped in plastic, as it was when I received it.
The mat is a cream colored.
The print shows some slight yellowing due to it's age....it is at least 150 years old!

It is labeled by the previous seller in the upper right corner:
Steel Engraved
Published 1850
Hand colored

SIZE: Of the mat: 12 1/2" T x 10 1/2" W
The print is approx. 8" T x 6" W including the margin.

This will be placed within a cardboard "portfolio" and mailed in an envelope.
I will refund any shipping over charges in excess of $2.00
