Two fine, original drawings of carriages.
Item ID 71450
No place, no publisher, 1906-1907. Two oblong drawings: one in thin ink lines with fine gouache colouring, over 15.0 x 23.0 cm, in oblong cardboard frame (30.5 x 23.5 cm); the other in sharp pencil, and with an overlaying, smaller board with the carriage top (over 16.2 x 24.7 cm) in oblong cardboard frame (32.1 x 43.4 cm). Two very attractive, detailed drawings of horse-drawn carriages, made in the very early 20th century, when such carriages still were the main means of human transport. Probably originating from the Netherlands. Both are signed with the same - tiny - monogram, and dated 9-5-07 and 4-6-06 respectively. The first is very skilfully coloured; the second ingeniously shows two states: with and without a top. Paper very slightly age-toned; a bit of soiling and thumbing in the margins, otherwise in very good condition. Double art: fine drawings of fine carriages
