antique hand coloured engraving of two pigeons and a turtle dove


We discovered this very pretty and original antique hand coloured steel engraving at a small antiques dealer in England. Dated from 1840 it depicts a stock pigeon, ring pigeon and a turtle dove. The light, dusty pink mount emphasises the subtle colours of the birds. Framed in a gold coloured wooden frame here in Singapore, it would look great as a single little picture over a side table or in a group on a gallery wall. 

There might be slight irregularities on the engravings, which are normal and reflect the age of the picture.

Dimensions: Frame 20cm by 26.5cm, illustration 11cm by 18cm.
Shipping: International shipping available.
