by D. G. Thompson
+ Click to enlarge
This striking engraving was created from a painting by the prolific 19th century illustrator, Alfred Randolph Waud. This engraving shows the busy docks New Orleans in the foregraound (where a shipment of bananas have just arrived. Sailing ships, steamships, and riverboats fill the Mississippi, with the city shown in the background.
To bring the engraving "to life" we commissioned one of America's finest watercolorists to meticulously hand paint the original engraving with authentic 19th century colors. The result is a fine work of art that depicts this scene from more than 130 years ago.
All sizes shown are approximate. Matted maps or prints are smaller than the "matted" dimensions shown by about 6".
All of our authentic, more than 100-year old, maps and prints come double matted within museum quality, archival rag mat boards at NO ADDITIONAL CHARGE.
Due to the INCREDIBLY high shipping prices charged for OVERSIZE shipping, shipping charges may be higher than quoted for items that measure more than a total of 70" (matted height + width). For example a matted piece measuring 32" x 40" would be considered OVERSIZE (72"). For complete delivery information, see Information page.
All our authentic antiques are one-of-a-kind items. Since they are actual old works of art expect small imperfections. In some cases we may have more than one of a particular map or print. Since each is unique they may vary slightly from the item shown (when we have more than one if a particular item, the colors may be different than those shown). Each antique map or print has been dry cleaned by hand and are conservation mounted and protected in attractive rag mats. Every work in our gallery carries a lifetime guarantee of authenticity (authentic antiques only) and a 30-day satisfaction guarantee (see Information page for details). Again, the sizes stated are approximate.
