"Please remember the Grotto"

Oval Baxter type print. Published by Le Blond & Co. London

George Baxter (1804-1867) invented this very intricate type of color printing.

Robert LeBlond (1816 - 1863) and his brother Abraham (1819 - 1894) founded the Le Blond Printing Company in 1840. They used very successfully the Baxter printing method, of which this is a fine sample. Ca. 1870. Framed probably around 1900.

The oval scene shows the then popular „oyster day" or „grotto day". Children sold oysters. They were harvested by the millions and served the poor as a snack and the wealthy as a delicatesse.

Oval print is mounted onto a bordured carton. Colors are very fresh. Underlying carton has general age toning. The print was framed by Davey & Sons in Manchester (a framing company existing from 1630-1950). Frame has only minicule traces of age!

Oval measures vertically: 13,3 x 16,8 cm (ca. 5.2 x 6.6")

Frame overall: 21,3 x 27 cm (ca. 8.4 x 10.6")
