Chippendale's Design - "CLOTHES CHEST" - Hand-Col. Engraving -1762
RARE, HAND-COLOURED CHIPPENDALE DESIGN ENGRAVINGThis 254 year old print is from Thomas Chippendale's "THE GENTLEMAN & CABINET-MAKER'S DIRECTOR" published by T. Becket & P.A. in London in 1762.
Thomas Chippendale (1718-1779), an English cabinetmaker, was one of the most distinguished and well known of all designers of fine furniture. His "DIRECTOR" was the first comprehensive design book for furniture ever to appear and it remains probably the most important. It was the principal inspiratiion behind characteristic mahogapny furniture of the 1700's.
This large copper engraving print (the size of the picture) is about 13" x 9" on a page that is about 18 1/2" x 11". It is in good condition with natuaral age toning. Some of the prints have water stains in the margins outside of the engraved area. It is on fine, hand made, laid paper. It is suitable for framing and would be an excellent gift.
This print is rare ! I found the Chippendale book selling for over $27,000 on the Internet.
