City Scene by August Jaeger – Original Engraving

Original engraving, signed A. Jaeger lower right.
A busy market scene in an arcaded town (Berne?).
Dimensions (platemark/image size): 17 X 22.5 cm
Condition: The central image on cream bond paper is in excellent condition, but there are several tears and creases in the very outer margins (beyond the region of this scan – full margins are not shown). These are well outside the pictoral area, and easily covered when matted and framed.
