A Feast of Cherries 1878 Victorian Myles Birket Foster Antique Engraving

by PetitPoulailler

Myles Birket Foster was a Victorian illustrator and painter known for his depictions of children. The pastoral beauty of this piece is so sweet - the day lilies blooming at the left of the path, the girls gather together with their bonnets casually tossed off, baskets empty and concentrating on the treasure of ripe cherries ... simply too tempting not to be tasted right now!

Wonderfully detailed and sweetly kind, the engraving is a loving portrait - the girls are obviously in close friendship, their quiet sharing of the cherries!

The 135+ year old captioned engraving is printed on card, blank on its reverse and measures 8.625" x 10.25" (22x26 cm) with the actual engraving measuring 7" x 10" (18x25 cm). Please note a light moisture mark at the bottom left corner. A beautiful study to frame - for the study, the studio. The edges are clean and smooth and there are no tears, folds, creases, or other marks.

Lovely to frame for your home decor or perhaps you'll use in your art - card and tag creations, scrap-book page making, collage.

You are purchasing an original 1878 paper and it does not have watermarks. I will send this to you flat, protected, and by USPS 1st class mail.
