Brand Etsy

This is a wonderful chromolitho print issued by Vanity Fair in 1880, original, not a reproduction - it is accompanied by a separate text page that describes the subject of the caricature. Vanity Fair magazine published coloured caricatures of famous figures in British society from 1869 until 1914. The caricatures were primarily by artists Spy and Ape but also by others. This one is of Lieutenant-Colonel Henry Stracey of the Scots Guards, an accomplished sword fencer. The print measures 10 1/4 by 15 while the image area measures 7 1/4 by 12 1/4. It is in very clean condition, wonderful display piece when framed. The print will be delivered rolled in a box - should you require it flat, please let me know, but delivery uncharges may be necessary. Wonderful print - great display for a fencing enthusiast!
