RARE 18th Century Large Circular Stipple Engraving Infancy By William Wynne Ryland Gorgeous Gilt Frame, English Country House Decor - image 1 of 8

This is a fabulous original George III period stipple engraving with etching! It has a wonderful English country house look due to its SUPERB circular Georgian gilt frame..

This fine, original engraving was produced in England circa 1780. The engraving was drawn and engraved by William Wynne Ryland (b abt. 1732 – d 1783). William Wynne Ryland was a celebrated English engraver who pioneered stipple engraving. Interestingly he was executed for forgery, this was a big story at the time. He left a widow and six children. His widow kept a print shop for many years in Oxford Road, London.

The engraving is titled ‘Infancy’ and features a portrait of a young child. The engraving is of the highest quality. The Georgian circular gilt Gesso frame is also splendid quality. We find framer/gilders details verso for a business in Hill Rise, Richmond, England.
This large print would have been destined for a large country house, or on display in the stair way of a large town house. Reference: Accession number e.572-1936 in the Victoria and Albert Museum’s online collection.

Measuring: Frame diameter 10.25 inch (26 cm). Aperture width 7.5 inch (19 cm).

Condition: Light surface wear and occasional chip to frame. Print has likely been trimmed to fit frame, but unopened by ourselves.

SHIPPING: Due to size and depth of this glorious frame, it will need to ship via courier rather than be posted. Express Courier shipping is included in the price but buyers are responsible for any import duties if applicable.
