Print: Baxter Print - CL 296 - Published for use in Marshall's Ladies Daily Remembrancer 1848 but also issued separately by Baxter. It can only be found on Baxter’s Blue Lined Mount (BLM), not on later Red Seal and Embossed Mounts which started about 1849 / 50. Obviously only issued for quite a short period which is most probably the reason for its scarcity. This and Claremont are often said to be of a more pastel tone than any other Baxter’s small views. They were both on the same plate and I feel have a softer tone as these prints would have been only printed from wood blocks rather metal as in prints from the mid 1850’s onwards. A hard print to find.
The house, on the banks of the River Thames is no longer there and the grounds were made a public park in 1887
When in the pocket book under the print is engraved on the left, "Baxter's Patent Oil Printing, 11, Northampton Square"; in the centre, is the above title; and on the right is "From a Painting by S. Fisher,”.
Size (cm ht x w): 5.7 x 9 (print)
State: On Blue Lined Mount which has been trimmed to a good border
