This initial letter is a fine, original, hand-colored copper plate engraving.
Date: c. 18th century
Size of image: 2-1/4 x 2-1/4 inches (5.8 x 5.8 cm)

Capital letters were drawn, then engraved, to grace the beginning of chapters or sections of books. They were often also carefully hand-colored. This letter is from an unidentified book, but based on the paper used (and the text on the back side), this letter is from the 18th century.

It would look stunning framed, and would make a great gift.

This listing is for 1 Capital Letter. No frame or mat is included. This is an original antique engraving (not a copy or a print).

This will be mailed in a nice cellophane envelope placed in a sturdy cardboard mailer for protection during shipping.
