French, 18th Century Hand-Colored Engraving on Laid Paper by Condoni of Paris: The Pleasures of the City


This 18th century hand-colored engraving by Condoni of Paris is on laid paper. Dimensions of the engraving (not including the card stock frame, which is of much later provenance) are 12.75" x 9.75" (with variations where the engraving is unevenly trimmed.)

Condition: Please note possible paint loss to the green dress on the far left figure and the man's jacket on the far right. There are also variations in color intensity, which I believe can be attributed to shading and not to paint loss. (For example, examine the reddish ruffle on the white dress of the foreground figure of the woman as well as the green chair.) Additionally, as mentioned in the dimensions, the engraving is unevenly trimmed, and there is overall discoloration and wear commensurate with age. Finally, the engraving is held to the card stock frame with what appears to be archival tape. I've not tried to remove this tape.
