Piazza Scenes - Needlebox Prints – Bradshaw & Blacklock (940)
Print: Bradshaw & Blacklock 129, one of Baxter Licencees more well known for their Bradshaw’s Guides and Railway timetables. This is a complete strip of ‘needlebox’ prints. Meant to be cut into five smaller prints to adorn the lids of small boxes holding sewing needles, pins and such like.
Only recently definitely confirmed as by this printer and the No 129 refers to The New Baxter Society B & B catalogue also available on this site. Comes from the same sheet as The Procession and River Garden Scenes
Unlike Baxter, B & B were more commercially minded and printed many of these types of prints for the ticket trade, labels etc as such some examples aren’t as fine as can be found in some of their examples on stamped mounts
Date: Circa 1850’s
