An original late 19th-century pen & ink drawing, A Victorian Dinner Party.
A compelling pen and ink drawing of male and female figures dressed and seated at a sumptuous table. A male servant attends to them in the upper right. There is a small additional drawing of a woman in a hat in profile taped to upper left.
Minor foxing and light overall age toning as shown. Water stains in the centre as shown. Creasing to the lower two corners, with an additional area running diagonally downwards from the upper left. Tape still present verso along the upper edge, visible through the front. Hole in the upper left, near the additional drawing. Tear and creasing to the small affixed drawing as shown. Small cluster of very tiny holes gathered in the lower right quadrant, likely due to historical wear to the paper surface.
14cm x 18.4cm.
