These highly decorative 18th Century illustrations feature intricate details of the finest homes in Great Britain.  Ribbons and coats of arms add to the decorative nature of the scenes. The fabulous old prints are highly regarded in the rare print world as well as the design community. The copper plate engravings by Kip were incredibly detailed for the time. The old scenes of manor homes of nobility around Great Britain were the first of their kind. These are highly decorative antiques from Britain. These are extremely good strikes. The copper plate engravings were printed onto fine hand made hand laid linen rag. The illustrations were delineated and engraved by Dutchman Johannes Kip and date to 1708. The water colors have been professionally added to perfection.

Each piece measures 15×18″ and are priced at $550. each.   Click here to contact us.

A laborious craft of all those involved in producing something like these 18th Century Kips Views Great Britain. First for all the craftsmen involved, someone had to sell the commission. A published had to acquire the work for his firm. He had to win the job, and it came only through experience in publishing a magnificent books. Second the illustrations had to be meticulously drawn, with the best accuracy. The image would be transferred onto a copper plate and engraved with burins. The paper was hard to acquire, and the engraver would have to re engrave another plate after just 300 strikes. The water colorists would die at young ages, due to licking tips of their paint brushes. Yet these old prints still exist in super fine condition and exemplary condition. That is mostly due to the quality of the rag paper. Paper was made of rag right up through the turn of the 20th Century. Coming from linen, flax, etc, NOT TREES, there was no acid in the paper. Very expensive to acquire, inconsistent, etc. TODAY Paper is made from trees, and was during the 20th Century, is highly acidic and does not last for long.
