Baxter process colour prints, varnished, 1841, [Lewis, 129 and 131, respectively], each c.530 x 425mm. (21 x 16 3/4 in), both in matching gilt frames surmounted by a crown, one detached (2).
'These are generally accounted to be Baxter's two finest prints'. (Lewis George Baxter, The Picture Printer)
Under glass, varnished with some discolouration, some surface dirt. Appears to be mounted onto canvas and fixed over a stretcher. Unexamined out of frame. May benefit from a light clean. The matching frames have some small nicks and blemishes, with one having the surmounting crown detached, but could be restored.
