We have named this gentleman, since the print below it doesn't include his identity. Dr. Swan Anoa. (If you're from the Asheville, NC area, you'll know we have a lovely river and town named Swannanoa.)
It only says it was printed by T. Hurlston, in Kilburn, London, England.
was in a frame which was purchased by a friend at an antique auction.
She wanted to use the frame, so Mr. ? from 1853 was removed. We are
wondering if anyone would pay 75 cents for the print.
We also wonder who he might be.
More credits are:
When checking (superficially I admit) google, I found G. Zobel had also engraved a picture of Queen Victoria, after a painting which is in a museum, but the picture isn't available on line because of copyright apparently.
No luck in my search for the printers. Jones & Co. 1 Bloomfield Rd., Kilburn, London.
This is to be sold (?) at our Trillium Yard Sale on Saturday, May 3, 2013.
