Details: Beautiful pair of reproduced etchings from a copper engravings circa 1693 featuring two scenes in Indonesia taken from an original copper-engraving from Joan Nieuhof's book "The Landscape of the Dutch East India Company"-Amsterdam 1699. The piece pictured on the left, titled "Girofles - Naegel Boom", which depicts villagers collecting cloves from the fragrant trees. The piece pictured on the right, titled "Suycker Riet - Cannes ou Rofeaux" depicts a sugarcane plantation scene in a tropical Asian landscape. Both pieces are matted on a slightly marbled ivory paper with an interior gold edge and subtle red accents. Custom framed in distressed, burnished light gold frames with a double beaded interior edge and covered with glass. Simple, yet wonderful pieces!
Dimensions: 26"w x .75"d x 22"h (each-7 lbs)
Condition: The artwork is in perfect condition, however, the "Girofles" piece has a chip on the frame of the lower right hand corner.
