For your consideration is this vintage Litho print that looks to be the work of British Artist John Hamilton Mortimer (1740-1779) and is signed ‘Hamilton – John 72, with a hand-drawn copyright mark followed by what appears to be A R Angelo 73 above that.
This detailed litho depicts a Basket Mender Sitting outside mending baskets, with a slew of them waiting. He is sitting on a wooden box with another large wooden box in front of him labeled ‘Fragile’ with baskets on top of it. There is a tree to his left and he’s leaning against a wall.
This litho is black ink on a nice off-white paper and measures 11 1/2″ wide x 15 1/2″ in height. The print is framed and matted in a light beige.
It is framed in a dark stained wood with a shiny gold trim on the glass side, which measures approximately 21″ H x 17″ wide. The glass is nice and clear and the paper backing is intact albeit for one corner that appears to have been repaired and painted over in black.
